Venue overview

Located in the heart of Stoke-on-Trent, the Regent Theatre is the city’s largest theatre, housing touring productions from across the UK. Originally opening in 1929 as a cinema, the theatre has hosted a variety of entertainment over the years, including pop concerts and amateur dramatics, before becoming an Odeon Film Centre in 1989. Following a multi-million pound city development, the venue was reopened as Regent Theatre by Her Majesty the Queen. Restored to its original Art Deco style, the interior is designed in ornate gold, featuring a 1,600-seat auditorium and modern facilities that make it one of the country’s most prolific regional theatres.

Best known for hosting UK tours, including Noises Off, An Inspector Calls and Saturday Night Fever, the Regent Theatre is a large-scale venue that regularly houses Glyndebourne Touring Opera productions. Built across two tiers, the Stalls and Circle, there are a variety of views on offer in the theatre, with rows that curve slightly around the stage. The Stalls are larger than the Circle, which features slip seats that face the stage at a stark angle. A steep rake throughout the auditorium ensures all views are good, although legroom may suffer slightly.

Good value seats

Seats from Row H onward in the Circle are usually cheaper, due to feeling slightly more distant from the stage. However good, unobstructed views can be achieved from here and these are worth purchasing for large-scale productions. Seats at the ends of rows are also a good option, as the slight curve ensures that no action is missed.

Premium seats

There are good views on offer throughout the Regent Theatre, with the best experiences located in the centre of the Stalls, between Row A and F. Sitting centrally will allow for a panoramic view of the stage, whilst the centre-front of the Circle is a good option for large-scale productions, due to no restrictions from safety rails.

Decent sized seats with enough padding to make them comfortable. There is enough room to sit without knees touching the seat in front. It’s a decent view of the whole stage, avoiding the safety rail and a steep enough rake to see over the heads in front.... More

View was good, although despite being in the 4th row of the circle I still felt quite far from the stage. I was pleased with the view but wouldn't pay full price- I originally booked tickets further back but got upgraded. More

View of the stage was uninterrupted, any further forward and there would have been a rail in the way of the view. Seats are comfy and slightly larger and with more leg room than those at the Palace and Opera House in Manchester. More
