“Small but intimate theatre”
Reviewed 1 April 2013

In the heart of Brighton it forms part of the Dome complex. This small theatre puts on a good variety of shows. Has a good bar in the basement too.

“Annual Adult Panto”
Reviewed 15 March 2013

We have come to Brighton for 5 years specifically to see this Panto, and visit friends that we have made in the Brighton Area. Love the Theatre Royal, and always enjoy the Panto as it is a lot of great FUN!!!!

“Cosy”
Reviewed 1 January 2013

Unsure that I would agree with the reviewers who described this as 'stepping back in time'. For me it's a fairly modern intimate theatre. I went there this new year to see The Treason Show. We had a drink in the bar first and although there was a bit of a wait it wasn't too bad. You are allowed to take drinks into the theatre which is a bit of a bonus as it means you haven't got to gulp your drinks down during the interval. The seating is fine with good views from everywhere. I would say that the seats themselves aren't that comfortable and that because of the design there is no real space to put coats and bags.

“Very old and nostalgic”
Reviewed 28 July 2012

This is like stepping back in time. Very attractive building that has always been well maintained.

The seating is quite uncomfortable and the seats are very small - so if you're on the large side, think seriously about this first before booking!

The staff are extremely helpful and always so polite and will help with any questions you may have.

“SO LOOKED AFTER!”
Reviewed 22 July 2012

My sister and I went to The Pavilion Theatre last night. My sister has special needs and has some mobility problems and the theatre were informed of this when we booked our tickets. As soon as we arrived at the theatre and announced ourselves at least two members of staff knew who we were and were so helpful. They made sure that we were able to get to the actual auditorium via the lift AND although it was an 'unreserved seating' performance - they had actually reserved two front row seats for us.

We felt so spoilt - it was a lovely experience with the minimum fuss and I'm looking forward to the next time.
