We visited the theatre two nights on the trot. Although the theatre is a little dated. Both the play and show we went to see were excellent. Nice staff and wouldn’t hesitate to visit again!

I have been here several times now and I have enjoyed myself every time. Its a great venue for watching your favourite stand up to watching a classical musical performance.

Hi. From my experience of visiting the Royal and Derngate once seated the staff would be ok to allow you to move seats if you have restricted view or they are not suitable for other reasons. Enjoy your visit to the theatre. More
