Newcastle’s Theatre Royal is one of only 9 Grade I listed theatre halls in England, the city’s theatre is often regarded as the finest theatre building in the country. Theatre Royal first opened its doors in February 1837 and has been renovated many times since its first show, the largest of which was instigated directly after a fire following a showing of Macbeth in 1899. The renovation work saw the entire auditorium re-designed by one of the most iconic theatre architects, Frank Matcham.

The most recent renovation of the Theatre Royal was in September 2011, which lasted for 6 months. The £5 million project attempted to recreate the original Edwardian style of Frank Matcham from 1901. To help capture the original feel from the 1901 renovation, the original wallpaper has been reprinted along with replacing missing tiles and updating the original fixtures and fittings. There has also been a strong focus on creating additional comfort for visitors; this entailed installing new seats in all areas of the theatre.

Each year the Theatre Royal hosts over 300 shows which are enjoyed by over 300,000 visitors, this is due to the theatre accommodating the biggest names in dance, drama, music and comedy.

The Theatre Royal plays home to the Shakespeare Company, the National Theatre, Opera North and Rambert Dance Company.
