A live theatre production is one of the most pleasurable and memorable experiences available, giving a sense of vibrancy and quality that you won't get from TV or the cinema. Here at the Royalty you can enjoy an evening of excellent live entertainment in a friendly, intimate atmosphere. In fact, it's more than just a show; it's a great night out.


We are delighted to have David Parfitt, award-winning film producer and current chairman of BAFTA, as our theatre patron.

Our theatre boasts comfortable seating as well as a fully stocked bar. For those not travelling by car we are situated close to the city centre and only a few minutes' walk from the University Metro Station.
