Norwich has the best theatre outside of London. The Kinks story was amazing and the audience just bought in to every second. By the end you believed the lead performer was Ray Davies he was brilliant. The whole place was jumping by the end and everyone had a smile on their faces. I liked the layout in the stalls with...

norwich has outgrown this small venue. the seats are compact and the central aisle was removed to squeeze more seats in making it claustrophobic in truth. we go a few times a year but it needs to be something special to overcome our resistance to being jammed in like sardines

Great meal prior to a matinee. Nice selection of light meals. The monk fish, burger and steak ciabatta all went down very well. Nice atmosphere good service will definitely come again. I understand in the evening you get to reuse the table for interval drinks.

We have seen several productions at the Theatre Royal and it is a great place to experience theatre. Last visit was for Northern Ballet - Casanova, which was a fantastic production

I have just watched a performance of Northern Ballet's Casanova at the Theatre Royal Norwich, and found it to be an amazing emotional experience- one of the best performances I have seen. Northern Ballet go from strength to strength; the dancing was superb, sets, lighting, costumes, spectacular, and the music just perfect. The standing ovation was fully deserved!

Thoroughly enjoyed Casanova. Dancers were amazing. Great seats on front row. Lovely theatre. Drinks and sweets are expensive.

Wow, beautiful costumes and amazing dancing, well worth seeing, a great performance. The seat aren't as comfortable as they used to be, and could do with restuffing. Have seen some brilliant musicals and ballets here in recent years, I hope they continue to attract the same great companies producing amazing shows. I hope the manager continues in the same vane...

We went to see the matinee performance of Abigail's Party starring Amanda Abbingdon. This was a great play and still relevant today even though it is in it's 40th year anniversary tour. This was a great afternoon out but we found the drinks and sweets very expensive.
