What’s On at Richmond Theatre

The Richmond Theatre events calendar for 2024 proves you don’t need to travel into central London to enjoy a range of world-class performances. Over the next twelve months, you can catch the emotional book-to-stage adaptation The Kite Runner fresh from Broadway, Kay Mellor's The Syndicate, and David Walliams’s Awful Auntie.

Also this year, we are excited to see big events for thrill-seekers, including spooky West End hit 2:22 A Ghost Story, Sleuth - where a young man gets caught in a web of deception - and Murder in the Dark starring Tom Chambers. These atmospheric shows are perfect to enjoy in the colder months, before a brand new season is announced for summer. Be sure to grab your tickets for these popular shows before they sell out!

About the Richmond Theatre

Located in one of London’s suburban neighbourhoods, Richmond Theatre first opened in September 1899 with a production of Shakespeare’s As You Like It. Originally named the Theatre Royal and Opera House, the Grade II listed building was designed by renowned theatre architect Frank Matcham, and is considered one of the best surviving examples of his work. 

The theatre was refurbished and expanded in the 1990s under the supervision of designer Carl Toms, but still features its original beautiful red and gold interior. The sumptuous auditorium has made it a popular filming location, and it has stood in for various other theatres on screen. These include the West End’s Duke of York’s Theatre in Finding Neverland and Washington DC’s Ford Theatre in National Treasure: Book of Secrets.

Currently run by ATG, Richmond Theatre has a capacity of just 840 in an intimate, comfortable auditorium. It hosts a variety of national touring events including music, dance and comedy, as well as amateur dramatics groups in residence at the venue.
