“One of the Nicer Theatres”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2012

Newcastle Theatre Royal is definitely one of the nicer theatres throughout the UK. It's recently been refurbished but even before hand it was beautiful and attracted the top shows. The architecture inside and out is very attractive, seats are somewhat tight and prices can be a little steep, but I generally don't mind because of the great performances!

“Beautifully Refurbished Theatre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2012

Such a grand theatre that has been beautifully refurbished. It offers great accessibility and very comfortable seats with plenty of leg room.

Prices at the bar are more than a little eye watering though.

“But the seats!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2012

Unfortunately, the seats don't fold up to allow other theatre goers to pass with ease. A struggle to the end of the row each time someone wanted past.
