Georgian Theatre Royal, Richmond

Georgian Theatre Royal, Richmond

The Georgian Theatre Royal, Britain's oldest working theatre in its original form, is both a thriving community playhouse and a living theatre museum. The theatre seats around 200 people and has a uniquely charming and intimate atmosphere. Built by actor-manager Samuel Butler in 1788, the Georgian Theatre Royal was managed by Butler along with his circuit of northern theatres. 

Parking: there are two pay-and-display carparks very nearby on Victoria Road, and parking is free of charge in all carparks after 18:00.

Accessibility: the venue is fully wheelchair accessible through the lower (left-hand) door to the theatre, and then via a lift to the top floor. There are two wheelchair spaces available in the auditorium, and both of the nearby carparks have spaces for Blue Badge holders.

Refreshments: are available to purchase at the theatre bar.

Toilets: are situated on the ground floor of the theatre.
