Good Value Seats

Seats in the Balcony at this theatre are always the cheapest and often the best value for money. Sitting near the front centre provides an excellent unobstructed view of the stage that allows you to absorb the atmosphere of this amazing venue. These seats can often be better than those in the Grand Circle.

Premium Seats

Sit in the front of the Royal Circle for the best overall view of the vast stage! Seats 12-24 are dead-centre and avoid any restrictions that could occur in seats towards the ends of rows. Alternatively, sit in the Stalls for a hugely immersive experience devoid of any restrictions.
