Tour of the Theatre Royal Haymarket

  • This location is shown only to members

Come along on Saturday 17th May for a tour round the Theatre Royal Haymarket!

About the theatre
The Theatre Royal Haymarket, known originally as ‘The Little Theatre in the Hay’, is a Grade I listed building situated in the heart of the West End. Designed and constructed by John Potter in 1720 it is one of Britain’s most treasured theatres. The theatre seats 893 patrons and is the third oldest London Playhouse still in use.

Both Henry Fielding (Tom Thumb, The Historical Register) and Henry Carey staged their plays here.  Oscar Wilde also has a strong link with the theatre.

The Theatre Royal Haymarket Company was set up in 2007 and has since produced some of the theatre’s most successful productions including Waiting for Godot and Flare Path.

We will be having a private 2 hour tour, including the opportunity to go on stage and go into the dressing rooms.  Cost is £10 per person.

We are limited to the numbers we can bring and can only do one tour per day, but if you can't get on, we will be repeating it in the future.

If you can't see us outside the station, please call.

Look out for the group sign, hope to see you there!

    Very enjoyable. So interesting and, for an avid theatre goer, a privilege to be able to see so much of the theatre when empty and to see and hear the stage being prepared for the matinee. Very informative and knowledgeable guides. Thank you.
