The UK Theatre Awards

The UK Theatre Awards are the only nationwide awards to honour achievement in regional theatre throughout the UK.  Over 170 theatres of all sizes from across the country enter this award, which is voted for entirely by the public.  

We were delighted to be crowned the North East's Most Welcoming Theatre four years in a row, from 2015 - 2018, and named as the overall national winner in 2015 - we're very grateful to everyone who took the time to vote for us.

We're very proud of the welcome we've been giving our customers, casts and crews for over 180 years! 

One member of the audience recently said to us “I'm really happy with the brilliant customer service from Theatre Royal today. Please tell your manager. The staff from the security to the people that show you your seat to the ice cream sellers all lovely.”
