The theatre has 1300 seats, spacious front of house areas with two bars, two function rooms and a café/restaurant and is fully accessible. We host regular access performances ensuring everyone can enjoy the magic of live performance:
- British Sign Language Interpreted performances
- Audio Described performances,
- Captioned performances
- and Relaxed performances.
Norwich Theatre Royal is a registered charity, working with thousands of local young people each year across training courses in theatre skills; educational visits and workshops; and work with the wider community as well. Stage Two is our new education and training centre (opened 2016) which houses all this work, and the theatre’s Learning & Participation team.
Ticket prices for every performance start from as little as £7 or £8, and we aim to keep the top prices at around 60-70% of what you’d pay in the West End for the same show or similar.
What we do
Charitable Support - Norwich Theatre Royal Trust Ltd is a registered charity (No. 262259) established in 1997.
We receive no revenue funding from public sources, and we rely on shares from Box Office Gross, Grants, Supporters & Funders, Hospitality and Business Income as well as our own Fundraising. Any surplus funds are reinvested in the theatre and our education programmes. Education is at the heart of everything we do as demonstrated by our flagship Norfolk Schools Project (NSP), which has run biannually since 1997. Central to the project's focus is the idea that, when given the opportunity, children can achieve things beyond their own and others' expectations.
Your ongoing support is essential to secure the future of Norwich Theatre Royal and our education projects. You will find more information on our commitment to the community within our Community Support pages.
