Progress so far

We're making great progress. Help us finish the job!

 

As you can see from the timeline below, since work started on the Theatre Royal in August 2012, progress towards the much-needed improvements has been rapid. The Theatre closed in February 2014 and re-opened in May 2014 for performances of Madama Butterfly, with the new foyers and facilities being complete and open to the public in December 2014.
