We have a beautiful 400 seat venue, rich in history but fully attuned to the 21st century. We present a dynamic programme of the highest quality drama, music, dance, comedy, children’s theatre and pantomime.
Situated at the cultural heart of the city of Winchester we are committed to bringing our audiences the best work, as well as supporting artists and performers.
In 2014 Theatre Royal Winchester celebrated its centenary. With its Edwardian-style auditorium and contemporary refurbishments, it is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful theatres in the south of England and is the only surviving cine-variety theatre in the country.
We are situated in Winchester city centre. Travelling on the M3 from Southampton take Exit 11, travelling from Basingstoke and London take Exit 9 and follow signs to the city centre.
