Immerse yourself in a world of greasepaint, first nights, stage fright, props, scenery and showbiz from days gone by..

The Georgian Theatre Experience gives a unique insight into the past and reveals the secrets of this, the most complete working Georgian playhouse in Britain.

During your visit you'll discover our exhibition area; finding out about the history of the theatre, built by actor-manager, Samuel Butler in 1788. You can try on costumes, learn about life as a Georgian actor and savour the sights, sounds and smells of 18th century England..

Don't miss our fully restored Woodland Scene. It's Britain's oldest surviving stage scenery.

You'll also get to see behind the scenes at the theatre itself. Stand on the stage, explore the pit and examine the scenery, enjoy the view from an exclusive box as well as the top tier cheap seats. Your guided tour is included in your Georgian Theatre Experience admission, which is valid for unlimited return visits for 12 months.
