#4 of 60 in Nightlife in York




York Theatre Royal is a theatre in St. Leonard's Place, York, England, which dates back to 1744. The theatre currently seats 750 people. Whilst the theatre is traditionally a proscenium theatre, it was reconfigured for a season in 2011 to offer productions in-the-round. The theatre puts on many of its own productions, as well as hosting touring companies, one of which is Pilot Theatre, a national touring company which often co-produces its work with the theatre. Additionally the main stage and studio are regularly used by local amateur dramatic and operatic societies. York Theatre Royal was one of the co-producers of the historic York Mystery Plays 2012 which were staged in York Museum Gardens between 2–27 August. The theatre reopened on Friday 22 April 2016 following a £6million redevelopment, with a new roof, an extended and re-modelled front of house area, a refurbished and redecorated main auditorium and with major improvements to access and environmental impact.

  • What a great venue. You feel so close and up with the action. The architecture is modern but tasteful, staff are great. Plenty of legroom which is a must for me. Two thumbs up.
  • Birthday lunch. My friends took me out for lunch and the food and service was excellent. Ally Hales is a credit to you. Her attention to detail is second to none. Will definitely be back.
