Our main house is a beautiful Victorian auditorium designed by Charles Phipps and Frank Matcham.

With a capacity of just under 700 seats it has been fully refurbished during the NTR rebuild and now perfectly balances the contemporary fit out of a modern stage alongside a heritage auditorium.

The NTR stage has been graced by iconic figures such as Laurel and Hardy, Dame Peggy Ashcroft and Sarah Bernhardt; it also featured in the infamous Ken Russell film, The Boyfriend and is one of the last few remaining Phipps/Matcham theatres in operation.

It has been played on by greats, savaged by fire and is now being returned to its former glory, we can’t wait for you to see it.
