Royal & Derngate is the main venue for arts and entertainment in Northampton.
It offers a diverse programme of work on its stages, from drama, dance and stand up comedy shows to classical music, children’s shows and opera. Some of the biggest names and shows on tour can be found here, alongside a widely acclaimed Made In Northampton programme of in-house produced work.
The Royal & Derngate is an innovative project which combines two theatres – the Derngate and the Royal in Northampton. The two auditoria, set on one side of a linear street-like foyer, are unified by a new central space containing a suite of performance studios, which creates a new and exciting image for the theatre.
Royal & Derngate now boasts an exceptional new rehearsal studio to support the innovative programme of work by their own production company.
The Royal Theatre (1884) has been sensitively restored and redecorated and is now recognised for its intimacy by both actors and audiences. The two auditoria are rejuvenated and now withstand the expectations of a 21st-century theatre audience.
