Really nice old theatre but could do with some TLC as its starting to get shabby. But with the prices they charge for a bag of sweet they'll soon have enough to do this.

We saw Dracula here. The bells and whistles were very impressive. Acting very variable. Mina was especially weak. Laughter often the result of poor delivery or incongruity rather than intention. Stage management superb and scene changing great.

We watched Dracula at the Theatre Royal, Nottingham and it was a fantastic experience. The show was amazing with brilliant effects, great acting and production. The theatre itself is comfortable, well presented and accessible. The staff were very helpful. I highly recommend Theatre Royal.

This concert hall is situated within the heart of Nottingham and there is not a bad seat in the hall where the view is restricted. Great sound and atmosphere. Nice bar next door selling food too.

On the top tier Tier 2 i felt too far away and the acoustics did not help . The people in the stalls got with it and stood up but not as you got further away. I did not warm to the tribute band either...More

Ignore my previous comment. That was for someone else. We always dress smart-casual for the theatre, but it really depends on the show we are seeing.
