The only surviving Regency playhouse in Britain

Theatre Royal is one of Britain's most significant theatre buildings and the only surviving Regency playhouse in the country.

This restored Grade I listed theatre offers you an authentic 19th Century theatre-going experience, combined with a contemporary bar for the 21st Century theatre-goer.

The theatre presents a vibrant, year-round programme of drama, music, dance and light entertainment, featuring many of this country's leading companies and performers.  It also offers a wide-ranging educational and community-based programme of actvities, tours and heritage teas.

Please come and visit us, we love to show people our theatre, but do call us before you come on 01284 769505 to check we are able to accommodate you. Sometimes we may not be open due to changes in circumstances including show preparations or auditions.

 We look forward to welcoming you to Bury St Edmunds and its Regency jewel.
