Description:
The Theatre Royal was completed in 1865, after six months of work and costing the clients, lace manufacturers John and William Lambert £15,000.[3] The Classic façade and Corinthian columns designed by Charles J. Phipps are still a major Nottingham landmark.

The Theatre Royal opened on Monday, 25 September 1865 with Sheridan's The School for Scandal.

Baroness Orczy's The Scarlet Pimpernel (1903) was first produced at the Theatre Royal by Fred Terry and Julia Neilson before being published as a novel. Although initially the play was met with little success, the novel is credited with influencing the mystery genre and arguably creating the "masked hero" genre.

On October 6, 1952, the theatre made history with the world premiere of The Mousetrap (as part of a pre-West End tour). The play has gone on to be the longest-running theatrical production in the world.

In 1969 the city council bought the theatre and began restoring it, re-opening it in 1978. It was in need of restoration and had earned a reputation as one of the worst theatres for backstage conditions in the country.

Fancy a bite to eat or a drink before the show? Try the Green Room bar/restaurant which is located on the ground floor at the Theater Royal.

Situated on the Theatre Royal's ground floor level, The Green Room Cafe Bar is the perfect place to meet for great value bar meals and light bites and to enjoy a pre-show or interval drink.

The Restaurant

The Restaurant offers an elegant fine dining experience, conveniently situated on the Theatre Royal's dress circle level.

Buffet Bar:

If you are short of time before a concert, the Buffet Bar offers a selection of quick and tasty snacks plus a range of hot and cold beverages. Situated on the Level 2 foyer of the Royal Concert Hall.

Bars And Interval Drinks Service:

The bars situated on all main foyer areas of the Theatre Royal and the Royal Concert Hall offer a wide selection of drinks to enjoy before a performance and at the interval. All bars offer a pre-order service for interval drinks.

We came to the bar for a pr-show drink, be warned not cheap here! We ordered a pint of John Smiths and it came to nearly £4!

Reeeet, better take a slash before the show.

The bogs are located back out the main bar area and our located just opposite the main doors to the Theater Royal. They serve well, both customers using the bar and punters who are just going in to watch a play.

Go through the Gents door to see on the wall on the left urinals galore. There must be over ten urinals lining the walls all the way to the back.

A sign above one of the urinals confused us a bit, even though it was not covered. It reads:

'We Apologies That This Toilet Is Temporarily Out of Use' (see photo).

On the opposite wall are three sinks. There are two cubicles on the other side of the bog. Both were locked with two gits in them, so we could not inspect them and photograph them.


To dry your hands, there are two of those Dyson 'airblades', which is an experience within itself.

Also on the back wall there is a baby changing table and a bin below that.

Wonderful old Theater here, a good bar and great loos.

Def worth a evening out here, for all the family. Don't forgot to visit the bar and the bogs!

8/10.
