On selected Thursdays and Saturdays throughout the year you can delve behind the scenes on our guided backstage tours. Visit the props room, paintshop, wardrobe and wings; and maybe rub shoulders with an actor or stage manager for just £6 (conc. £4.50).

All tours take place on selected Thursday and Saturday mornings and last approximately 90 minutes. As this is a working theatre we cannot always guarantee access to the stages for any tour, due to the changing nature of the productions.

Not only that, we also offer some fantastic Backstage Tour packages. Stay for a matinee and save 10% off the ticket price. Or stay for lunch and a matinee for just £13 and save 10% off the ticket price. To book these packages, call our box office on 0121 236 4455.
