Royal Court Theatre Heritage Talk
  • UK Regional & Tours

This year, as a part of the National Lottery's Thanks To You week, we are delighted to be hosting a talk about the heritage of our theatre. Tickets will be 5 or free if you show a National Lottery ticket or scratchcard when you book. All proceeds from the talk will go to the Royal Court Liverpool Trust.

The Royal Court is a Grade II listed building, a magnificent example of one of the best theatres built in the Art Deco style. The Royal Court Liverpool Trust is part way through an 11m scheme to renovate the building.

The theatre is one of Liverpool's most enduring and iconic buildings, and has a rich history including several ghosts!

The talk will be given by our two theatre tour guides, David and Andy, who have a vast knowledge of the building and it's past. From its time as a circus, through the glory days of high end theatre, to bingo and rock and roll gigs, they will share the whole history of the venue.

The talk is scheduled to last for around an hour with tea and biscuits available at the end.

We ask that all ticketholders wear facecoverings when they enter the building. There will be other safety measures in place including hand sanitizer, some social distancing and temperature checks on arrival.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
