Having danced in this lovely theatre many times with Northern Ballet, it was a nostalgic back memory lane trip! Norwich is still a beautiful city and the Assembly House next door, where we stayed, is absolutely gorgeous.

Lovely theatre with great productions but let down by the seats in the circle. Very little legroom and centre aisle done away with resulting in huge rows of centrally situated seats. Seats in the Stalls tend to be more generous. Pleasant restaurant that will allow...More

One slight problem is there is no centre aisle so if you have seats around number 20, you have to get in from either side. Also caters well for wheelchair users where they remove seats around the middle stalls.

We have been a few times and have only dressed as we normally would. Depending on what you are going to smart casual is fine.
