Theatre Royal Bath

The main entrance to the Theatre Royal (see below) was built in 1720 by Thomas Greenway, and was Beau Nash's first house. The theatre building behind it dates from 1805, has a capacity for an audience of around 900, and is one of the more important theatres in the UK outside of London. The theatre building is now supplemented by two smaller and more recent studio theatres, the Ustinov Studio and The Egg. In 2010, the theatre underwent a major refurbishment. The Theatre Royal is a Grade II listed building and also an excellent example of Georgian architecture.
