“Our Little Gem”
Reviewed 29 August 2012

Love this theatre, although tiny & short on funds, they keep it really well. It's just what a theatre should be. Lovely friendly staff, great shows & gigs. You really must check it out.

“Renovated, traditional”
Reviewed 1 June 2012

Renovated back to its orgional form (complete with re-instated band pit!) this is a very traditional Theatre, which host evenings accordingly. It even has a delightful little hidden cafe (which is open all day) too.

“Great little theatre”
Reviewed 13 April 2012

My wife and I visited the New Theatre Royal as our daughter was in a dance performance. The staff were friendly, the decor retains and olde-worlde charm (pleasant, not run-down) and you felt as if you were having a private performance! If you are in the lower stalls you may have to crane your neck up to look but this is a fine small theatre nonetheless!
