About the venue


The venue began life in 1850 as The Market Hotel. It was used as a convenient stop-over point for farmers on their way to buy and sell in the Corn Exchange next door (now Winchester Discovery Centre).

In 1912 the building was bought by the Simpkins brothers who converted it to a theatre.

Several refurbs later, The Theatre Royal is a beautiful heritage auditorium with modern stage and Front of House facilities
