Since its re-opening in 1963, The Georgian Theatre Royal in Richmond has operated as a living museum. We offer tours of the historic playhouse, but also operate as a working theatre with a vibrant program of events.
Every year there is a competition to see who can knit the most of whatever is needed – in 2015 it was leaves for Jack’s beanstalk, and in 2016 Snow White’s apples. We couldn’t do the pantomime without the involvement of the community, from our knitters to our amazing volunteers who work tirelessly to act as crew, front of house, and sell tickets.
