York Theatre Royal, York

York Theatre Royal has been producing theatre in the heart of the city for over 250 years. First founded in 1744, the then called, New Theatre, was established by Mrs Keregan, who inherited the theatre company from her husband, Thomas Keregan. The Theatre became Royal upon the grant of a Royal Patent in 1769, costing £500, a huge amount in those days.

Grand Opera House, York

The Grand Opera House was refurbished in 1987 at a cost of £4,000,000 restoring it to its former glory. The decor is very similar to how it was in the beginning, a new stage was built and a new foyer excavated beneath. The entrance on Clifford Street was made into a Box Office and Cumberland Street became the main entrance. Clifford Street has since been restored as an entrance to the auditorium as well as the Box Office.

The theatre has top rate entertainment including musicals, comedians and top national entertainers.
