I had my graduation ceremony here at the start of July. The building inside is wonderful! Could use an update on the outside.

The Royal and Derngate Theatre, set in the cultural quarter of Northampton, Is a lovely venue which hosts all year round entertainment, including a wide variety of plays, musicals and live acts to meet every taste. The theatres have such a lovely ambiance, have excellent catering facilities and also provide training in acting and theatre skills for young people.

Went to see Octonauts with young daughter. Apparently an old theatre, but seemed modern with good faciliites - nice bar with good selection of hot and cold food reasonably priced (veggie options too), drink prices OK, plenty of toilets, seting comfortable and spacious. Parking in Albion place was easy and not full - 20m from venue.

End of show again warm welcome people with... More
