The theatre is absolutely wonderful. Just choose the production you go to see with care; the recent Gilbert and Sullivan (HMS Pinafore) was poor

A rainy (weekend away) day and we decided to look around Richmond. Have never been around the Georgian Theatre (despite being from Yorkshire) and we just popped in to see if we could look round. THIS IS THE OLDEST THEATRE IN ENGLAND. They were delighted to see us and Sheila was just sitting waiting for her next tour. She offered us a quick half-hour tour round and her enthusiasm was highly infectious. We went into the balcony...down into the Pits (bench seating only)...the boxes...and both on and below stage. What a fabulous place - if your in the area we'd recommend it. Raining or not!!

This gem of a venue is so small and intimate you feel part of the performance ! Seating is very ' sit up and beg ' but it's all part of the historic charm !

This theatre is quite magical. Despite the obvious nods to health and safety, the theatre retains all the characteristics of its period.
