Description

Behind the Scenes: a tour of the Theatre Royal (members only)

As part of our hugely popular Behind the Scenes series, we are pleased to announce an exclusive trip for Chamber members to the iconic Theatre Royal Brighton. Members will be taken on a backstage and understage tour, discovering the theatre’s ancient stage traps, underground stream and secret tunnel.

With stars including John Gielgud, Marlene Dietrich, Judi Dench and Ian McKellen having graced its stage, the Theatre Royal has a prestigious history – a legacy that continues today with the staging of major productions before they go into the West End, smash-hit touring musicals, opera and ballet, as well as shows developed in Brighton.

The venue is 210 years old, making it one of the oldest working theatres in the country, as well as a Brighton landmark, so don’t miss the chance to take a closer look at the inner workings of this splendid Grade II-listed building as part of our exclusive members-only tour.

You can take a peek inside the Royal Box, or imagine it’s your big moment in the limelight as you tread the boards on stage. You’ll be able to take a look around the ‘gulp bar’, the backstage bar that served the theatre’s performers and once played host to famous Brighton resident Laurence Olivier. You’ll also get the chance to explore the unique backstage area, built out of what were originally fishermen’s cottages.

Finally, as a fantastic encore, you will get the opportunity to quiz members of the Theatre Royal’s management team as part of our Q&A session. There will then be coffee and networking in the Royal Circle bar, where you might even get the chance to look at some of the beautiful old programmes on display.

Make sure you join us for this brilliant event that's sure to bring the house down.

Please be aware that the tour includes some steep stairs.

Please note that due to limited numbers you may only purchase a maximum of 2 tickets per organisation.
