The Theatre Royal opened in early 1837, designed by local architects John and Benjamin Green. Thirty years later the interior was redesigned by C.J. Phipps. Following a fire in 1899, the interior was redesigned by Frank Matcham. While the exterior retains its 1837 appearance, the interior has been restored to Matcham’s 1901 design.
