New Theatre Royal aims to be a unique venue making a dynamic contribution to the cultural, educational, economic and social life of the community.

Our vision is to empower through creativity and bring performances and artistic opportunities to the city. Rooted in everything we do is our commitment to three core values – quality, diversity and community.

Our theatre offers something for everyone. From professional drama, comedy and dance to music, bingo and boxing – our aim is to commission, develop and create high quality and diverse productions. New Theatre Royal is a National Portfolio Organisation, which means that we represent some of the best arts practice in the world and play a vital role in helping Arts Council England meet their mission of ‘Great art and culture for everyone’.

New Theatre Royal is your theatre. We want you to feel a sense of ownership and membership of it. Whether coming to enjoy a show, learn new skills, put on your own event or simply enjoy a coffee in our vibrant café area, we whole-heartedly welcome you to be a part of this new and exciting era.
