Theatre Royal

Watch an entertaining show and learn about the city’s dramatic arts scene at this prominent theater. Meet friends for a pre-show chat in the bar or restaurant.

The Theatre Royal is one of Nottingham’s principal playhouses, offering a diverse range of shows for all ages. The 19th-century theater is a major landmark in the city and is recognizable by its classic white façade. Attend a ballet, musical, pantomime or play at this historic venue.

The theater is part of the Royal Centre complex that includes the Royal Concert Hall. Admire its elegant façade, which features large white Corinthian columns and arched windows. The imposing portico is made from Ancaster stone. Return to see the theater at night, when its columns are illuminated in warm light.

Buy tickets and take your seat in the stalls, dress circle, upper circle or balcony of the 1,186-seat venue. Before you settle in for the performance, enjoy a drink at the bar.

Reserve a table at the restaurant on the dress circle level. Sip wine and eat dishes such as slow-roasted pork belly and pan-fried swordfish. The Green Room Café Bar provides a more relaxed, casual setting for meals, snacks and drinks.

Embark on one of Ezekial Bone’s Magic Lantern Backstage Tours. A prominent Nottingham tour guide leads the behind-the-scenes theater tour and reveals anecdotes and facts about the building and the shows staged here.

Listen to intriguing tales about the history of the theater, which first opened in 1865 with a play by Richard Brinsley Sheridan. Notable productions to have been staged here include the 1903 showing of The Scarlet Pimpernel and the world premiere of The Mousetrap in 1952.

The backstage tours take place about once a month. Check dates online and book your spot in advance. Purchase tickets for shows online, over the phone or at the box office in the Royal Concert Hall’s foyer, which is open from Monday to Saturday.

Theatre Royal is in the city center, just south of Nottingham Trent University. Ride the tram to the adjacent Royal Centre stop. Bus stops also line the busy road beside the site. Nearby attractions include the Nottingham Playhouse, Rock City and the Cathedral Church of St. Barnabas.
