Went to Royal Philharmonic concert on 27 November and enjoyed it immensely. The only downside was the lack of any cloakroom facilities. It was a cold evening and a very warm theatre, so the opportunity to be relieved of top coats would have been very welcome. In the event, we were lumbered with them throughout the concert; very inconvenient.

Two medium size (the small must be minute) warm Chardonnay in plastic cups cost... More

We have used this theatre a lot over the years, its always clean and tidy and the staff are helpful and friendly. We usually have a stall box but this time we had a circle box, don't think there is much difference in the price of any tickets just that you only share space with between 8 and 15 people.... More

What a pleasure to visit this theatre again and to meet and chat with Gervase Phinn before his one man show. Norhampton is indeed very fortunate to have such a theatre!

This is for no specific visit except to sing the praises of the best reason to visit Northampton. The Derngate shows all the big tours and concerts and shares foyers with the Royal. The Royal puts on specific shows 'made in Northampton' and regularly gets 5 star reviews from national newspapers. It's one of the most beautiful Victorian theatres in... More

Great time had by all. Excellent music in one Northamptons iconic buildings. Always loads of different things to choose from. Ordering interval drinks take all the hassle out of it. Couldn't recommend more.

I think the Royal & Derngate somehow manage to provide a great selection of shows, and I often find a comedy or musical evening that I want to see. The setting is superb and, despite usually very busy, it is great to be able to relax in the bar for a while before each show. The ticket collecting facility is... More
