Norwich Theatre Royal is East Anglia’s leading theatre, presenting a high quality mix of drama, musicals, opera, dance, comedy, music, children’s and family shows all year round. With 1300 seats, the Theatre Royal is the largest venue in Norfolk, and plays a very active part in the cultural life of the region. Norwich Playhouse is a 300-seat riverside venue in Norwich and, like Theatre Royal, also presents a diverse range of shows at the mid-scale. Stage Two is the newest member of the Theatre Royal family and is a building immediately adjacent to Theatre Royal that is dedicated
to Learning & Participation and home to studio and training spaces as well as a 100 seat Studio Theatre.
Our buildings all offer level access to entrances, automatic doors and lifts to upper levels. There are accessible toilets and wheelchair-accessible seating inside the auditoria which are all equipped with induction loops. Sennheiser headsets on free loan offer hearing enhancement.
We offer around 50 assisted performances each year, including audio described, BSL interpreted, captioned and relaxed. In September 2017 we presented our first dementia-friendly concert. In May 2018 our Creative Matters series will focus on living well with dementia, offering a programme of performances & workshops for individuals living with dementia and for their carers and a conference for businesses looking to become more dementia-friendly. We hope the legacy will be a greater awareness of dementia and an appreciation of how the Arts can help contribute towards a meaningful, active and involved life for those living with or affected by dementia.
Our staff receive regular disability awareness training and, to date, over 150 have signed up to become Dementia Friends. We’re members of the Norwich Dementia Action Alliance and hope to make Norwich a Dementia Friendly City in 2018.
