History

The Royal Lyceum Theatre is a beautiful Victorian building with a long history. Built in 1883, its early days saw performances by the likes of Henry Irving and Ellen Terry, whilst being run by legendary theatre managers John B Howard and Frederick W Wyndham.

Throughout the twentieth century and into the twenty-first, the building has remained a theatre space and was taken over in 1965 by the Royal Lyceum Theatre Company.
