Royal Theatre & Opera House

Based on the 19th Century theatre in the town of Northampton, this building was designed by Charles John Phipps. He was one of Britain’s most prolific Victorian theatre architects with over forty buildings to his credit, starting with the Bath Theatre in 1863 and including the Savoy Theatre (London 1881) and finishing with Her Majesty’s Theatre, London, completed in 1897, the last year of his life. This particular theatre is a real gem inside and well worth a visit. There are a few features about it that are unusual – the name – usually they were called ‘Theatre Royal’ The ceramic itself is enhanced with 22 carat gold hand painted.  Errol Flynn – of swash-buckling fame – was in Northampton in his early acting years and played in Othello at the theatre!

From time to time we offer this building with different shows on the poster.  Currently we have on offer, Les Miserables, Carmen or Othello.  When ordering, please state which show you want in the notes section.
