Welcome to the Georgian Theatre Royal, Richmond, North Yorkshire.

The theatre was built 1788, closed 1848, reopened 1963, then restored and extended in 2003.

Built by actor-manager Samuel Butler in 1788, the Georgian Theatre Royal was managed by Butler along with his circuit of theatres at Beverley, Harrogate, Kendal, Northallerton, Ripon, Ulverston and Whitby.

As Britain's most complete Georgian playhouse, we invite you to explore the theatre, its history and what's on offer.
