Special “In Maintenance” Theatre Tour!

From tales of the myriad first-class actors who have walked our boards over the years, to anecdotes and ghost stories… this August experience our Theatre Tours with a twist! Our Georgian auditorium is spruced up over the summer, as our Technical and Production teams ensure everything is in working order for the Autumn shows.

Like our usual tours you’ll explore the theatre’s 252-year history with an expert guide, gaining insight into the recent redevelopment through our new foyer space, studio theatre, and heritage interpretation.

Unlike our usual tours, see our Georgian auditorium in maintenance mode as the work which enables us to be the oldest continuously-working theatre in the English-speaking world is done! Due to this essential work, we are unable to allow access to the theatre stage or the Paintshop on this tour; if these are experiences you don’t want to miss, they are available on our July or Autumn tours.

Tours generally start at 10:30am and last one hour. Tickets £10 (£8 concessions).
