Theatre Royal in Bury St Edmunds

Theatre Royal, Bury St Edmunds

This unique Grade 1 listed William Wilkins designed and owned Regency theatre dating from 1819 had suffered a series of inappropriate changes and a long period of neglect before being rescued by the National Trust. The architects have beautifully restored, repaired and reinvigorated the auditorium and led the whole building gently by the hand into the 21st century. New facilities including a modern but self-effacing foyer extension sit comfortably alongside and contribute effortlessly to the workings of a magical theatrical space.
