42 - 58 St. George's Street, Norwich, NR3 1ABArts
A 300 seat riverside theatre in the heart of the city, Norwich Playhouse is a friendly, relaxed and intimate venue developed from a Georgian maltings. Come in - have a look around - something is always happening! We programme a broad range of shows all year round, performed by top companies from all over the world. As well as being recognised as one of the very best comedy venues in East Anglia we present international music stars, critically-acclaimed drama companies, fun-filled children’s events and shows that are just a bit…different. From firm musical favourites to fresh new writing, and from well-established stars to the pick of the newcomers, the Playhouse offers something for everyone. We have an award-winning garden – a beautiful spot on a summer evening – and two busy galleries exhibiting a variety of works by local artists. We also have a great bar, selling wines and spirits, local ales, fresh juices, hot cocktails, Fairtrade drinks and German beers with unpronounceable names. You can pre-order interval drinks and then stay afterwards for the lovely music, free Etch-A-Sketch and happy chatter of the clientele.
