You are probably aware that Norwich Theatre Royal is one of the leading regional presenting theatres in England. Hopefully you have visited us at some point and enjoyed one of the shows in our 1300 seat theatre. Or maybe you’ve just popped in for a coffee or dinner in our restaurant and bars.
Perhaps you have yet to venture in, unsure of who we are and what we do. If this is the case, there is no better time to find out!
Based in the centre of the historic City of Norwich for over 250 years, we have established loyal audiences from across Norfolk, Suffolk and into Cambridgeshire. As the regional venue of choice for medium to large scale national touring companies we deliver a wide range of drama, comedy, dance, musicals and opera – frequently presenting work direct from the West End. Annually we welcome audiences of around 400,000 people to over 420 performances.
But did you know that we also work with around 60 businesses as part of our Corporate Club and as a registered charity, our reach extends beyond the stage. We work with people with disabilities and the elderly, to help prevent social exclusion and isolation, and with young people across the county, helping to develop confidence, creativity and making the arts more accessible to those in remote locations.
And as an extension of this work the Theatre has just embarked on an exciting new project. Stage Two is a learning and participation centre which is currently being built at the rear of our main theatre. Stage Two will offer more training in theatre skills, more education work with schools, training for teachers, new kinds of business training and a wide range of courses for young people and adults. We want to build confidence and creativity in our community, inspiring ambition and helping Norfolk thrive.
So next time you visit us, don’t just enjoy the show but have a peek over the railings to see the amazing developments taking place at Norwich Theatre Royal.
