London theatre in Norwich

Lovely theatre in city centre, has all the big shows. Very nice restaurant with before show meals or you can have a buffet meal but you need to get there early for that one.

We went to the theatre royal to see The Legends. It was a fantastic show. The pianist was amazing, I have never seen anyone's fingers move like his. Super show. The theatre royal staff were great as they are every time I've been. Very accommodating and so helpful & friendly. Good bar. Nice clean toilet facilities too.

Grand old theatre with great atmosphere, with the Kinks tribute band, Sunny Afternoon. It was a very good story with great music from thar era. We really enjoyed it, the second half was slightly better than the first.

We watched two Italian Operas (Nabucco on 09 May 2017 and Aida on 10 May 2017) during our stay in Norwich. There is a bar (Adnams Bar) and a restaurant (Kemp's Restaurant) and ample toilet facilities at Norwich Theatre Royal. Although the theatre was very crowded during both days of the shows, there was enough space to move around. Many... More

Would recommend the open days (I last attended the open day in 2015) as you have a chance to see behind the scenes and stand on stage, visit the dressing rooms and have a go at the lighting- suitable for everyone all ages you can go on a tour usually open days are in August and Admission is FREE -...

Visited the theatre whilst staying in Norwich. Came to see a show (Mary Poppins) which was excellent. The theatre is lovely. Comfortable seats and the usual refreshments on offer. Will definitely visit again.

Enjoyed the musical today with a great cast but have to say how disappointed we were that no songs from the film were included! I think if they had been, more folk would have been up on their feet and clapping to the familiar tunes. I was looking forward to hearing the well known songs!

Have not been here since the place was renovated some ears ago now. Disappointing that now there is limited exits if you want to get up and leave your seats, appears they have added more seat and reduced the isles. We came to see Sunny Afternoon (kinks) which was very good and informative about the Kinks early pop career.
