Went to see the Circus of Horrors here - lovely building and its the first time I have felt natural character in a Theatre. This place honestly makes you feel like its the late 1800's and you should be heckling the acts on stage. All in a good way - lovely decor, really cool venue - decent bar too. Staff... More

Everytime I visit, I love the atmosphere at the Theatre Royal. Historical authenticity has been retained, yet there is nothing historic or stayed about the range of performances that the theatre attracts. The upstairs bar has brilliant views over the pavilion gardens and is reminiscent of a bygone era, providing a lovely sense of decadence. The staff are always incredibly... More

My wife and I have visited this particular Theatre a couple of times now and so we felt that was an ideal opportunity to write a review. On this occasion we saw a stage adaptation of Dead Simple by Peter James. The cost of our tickets were very reasonable as were the extras offered within the Theatre. This included a... More

It was an amazing performance weaving together biography music and poetry of this artist who delighted and shocked his audiences in the 60ies

I've visited this theatre on many trips to Brighton & I have seen some fantastic shows!. I recently saw Calamity Jane which was absolutely brilliant! & what better venue to see such a brilliant show in, than Brighton's Theatre Royal. Friendly & helpful staff, gorgeous Edwardian decor & an intimate bar added to the entire enjoyment of the show!. Brilliant... More

This is a pre and post London weekly tryout theatre. High standard plays, musicals, pantomimes, comedíes. In fact everything a theatregoer could wish for in Brighton at non London prices!

Went to see Oh What A Lovely War (excellent show, excellent cast) first visit to this theatre which is situated right behind the Royal Pavilion. Really impressed with the beautiful architecture, original features, friendly staff and excellent seating. Would be more than happy to come back here to see another show. Not the cheapest theatre, but some things are worth... More

I love the Theatre Royal, Brighton. This was my latest visit to see the musical Spamalot (again). Not the biggest theatre I've ever been to, but definitely one of the nicest. The staff are excellent, from the girl who sold us our tickets, to the barman who complimented me on my moustache, to the gentleman I bought ice cream from.... More
