BHOD 13 - Theatre Royal Brighton Tour


Description - This important Grade II* listed building is one of the oldest working theatres in England. The property showcases an exquisite example of a Regency auditorium and a fine collection of historic buildings surrounding the stage house; a two hundred year evolutionary history that places it amongst the most significant theatres in the land. Theatre in Brighthelmstone (Brighton) started in 1766 at Barn Hall. Theatregoers were to patronise two other buildings before The Prince of Wales gave Royal Assent to the building of a new Theatre Royal Brighton on its present site in the summer of 1806. We first opened our doors to the public on Saturday 27 June 1807, with a performance of Hamlet and The Weather Cock, starring Charles Kemble of Drury Lane. Don't miss this opportunity to take a rare peek behind the curtain!
