Plymouth has a proud history when it comes to theatre and our current Theatre Royal is the largest and best attended regionally producing theatre in the UK.

We have great memories of attending musicals, plays, pantomimes, ballets and more there over the years, and we’re sure you have too. What are your favourite memories and experiences from your theatre-going past? Perhaps you’ve even performed at the theatre. Why not leave a comment below?

You can read more about the Theatre Royal and its architecture on the Historic England website. You can also see behind-the-scenes images from its workshops on its website.

You can also find out more about the history of theatre in the city on the Arthur Lloyd website.

The Theatre Royal was officially opened on 5 May 1982 by the late Princess Margaret.

Here’s a new video clip, produced especially for this year’s History Festival, of the opening.

The Coronavirus pandemic means the Theatre Royal has had to close its doors to the public for the first time in nearly 40 years. If you can make a donation to help ensure it can continue to do its brilliant work when this is over, you can find out more on its website.
