Went to see Parsifal - Wagner's opera - with friends. The production - from Freiburg in Germany - was stunning. A shame there were not of people present though. We had an excellent supper, served in each intervals, in the adjoining restaurant area, with good service too. A joy

I love going to this theatre. We sat in the foyer beside a disabled man, who is often there. Need to get early to get a seat - they need many more, the audience is getting older. Get an ice-cream, they are delicious. Staff courteous and helpful, seats comfortable with good views. A pleasure to visit.

My partner and I had never experience ballet before… so we decided to visit Norwich Theatre Royal and see Swan Lake performed by the Russian State Ballet. While the ballet was very good and an impressive performance we’re not sure if ballet is for us... The theatre itself was very inviting with a modern, clean entrance / ticket booking area... More

The matinees... More

We love going to the theatre - as always guaranteed a good night out. There is ample legroom for the average person and the seats are comfortable even for the longer shows. Lighting and sound guys do an amazing job - most recently for Puttin' On The Ritz - which was a fab show. Access is easy for all, including... More

The treatment of the material was unique, effective and quite moving. I'm from the American South and, having lived through the Civil Rights era, I found the play especially meaningful. The actors were superb.

Had a few lunches here in the form of sandwiches. Dressed up with a small side salad and crisps this is truly a delightful place to have a lunchtime snack away from the fast food outlets in the shopping malls and the plastic pub food. Sandwich fillings are just a little different to the normal. You pay a little more... More

We recently saw To Kill a Mockingbird, at the Theatre Royal, comfortable seating decent views of the stage, not too big not too small. A great theatre that attracts some quality plays. Half decent bar as well :-) Oh and the play ? It was Fantastic !
