Stair Lift Coming Soon
We’re currently investigating the installation of not just one, but two separate stair lifts.
It’s two flights to reach the auditorium. Whilst that’s not much for some, for others it’s impossible. So, we’re doing what we can in order to improve access. We’ve contacted a local stair lift installer, who have quoted us for the work. We’re all set with what we need, we just now require the relevant funding. So, we’re welcoming anyone wishing to make a significant donation, in order to help us achieve the target required. As there are two separate flights, we need one stair lift for the bottom set of stairs, and another for the top set. A curved installation would be impossible, due to the amount of foot space it would occupy, not to mention the increased cost.
So, if you know anyone who’d like to sponsor us for the installation of this facility, we’d love to hear from you. In return, we can offer the opportunity to display your branding or relevant signage, as well as provide advertising opportunities within the theatre.
We’ve built a bar!
For your refreshment, our dedicated working party team, have constructed a bar in the lower hall.
This will serve you better than the previously used prop-up tables. In addition, it has helped enable us to store the refreshments more easily than before, and allows us to stock a wider range, which permits us to serve you better. Check out the range of beers, wines and spirits in stock. You may be pleasantly surprised.
We’re delighted to announce that we have opened our very own YouTube channel. This will feature both audio and video, which is captured at the theatre from various events. For obvious reasons, we won’t be able to upload plays. However, we do plan to upload snapshots, and samples of productions, which will allow you to see what we’re all about. Meanwhile, the channel is being populated with the material that we do currently have in stock, and you’re welcome to submit your own.
If you have, or know anyone who has audio or video recordings of anything that has happened at the theatre, we invite you to share it, for others to enjoy. If it’s possible, we’d like to host it, on our very own channel. We’re also inviting people to come to the theatre and film the parts of the building that most people wouldn’t usually expect to see. For example, our theatre covers several floors of rooms, halls and working areas, which continue to fascinate all those who visit. We’d like to extend our welcome to people who can’t access the theatre as easily as they’d like, in the hope that they’ll support us wherever they are.

We’ve had a facelift!
For those of you who have visited us many times before, you’ll be only too aware that the colour pink has had its day! The entire lower section of our building has had a complete re-paint. This includes the lower hall, main foyer, customer toilets, and much more. All this is being done, to provide a fresh new look and feel to the Royal Manor Theatre, thus helping it enter the 21st century.
However we couldn’t have done this work without your support. We’d also like to thank the kind support of ‘Community Payback’ for the labour.
We’ve also much more planned, so be sure to visit us soon to see what you think.
Who you gonna call?
Paranormal investigators continue to visit to the Royal Manor Theatre, to see if they can find anything unusual happening in our theatre. Naturally, their investigations had to be undertaken at night. So, we give them unrestricted access to all areas of the theatre.
Then, whilst everyone else lay in their beds, the investigators undertake their research. Using the very latest technology, they are able to see if there is any sign of paranormal activity. Their findings are very exciting, and you’re invited to see them here - www.paranormalexploration.tv

Don’t be shy, there’s no need. It’s all good fun, and you’ll be in great company. Play readings are great fun, and are a real way to decide what we can perform next!
The Workshop Working Party is in the theatre every Wednesday afternoon from 1.00pm to 4.00pm to maintain the theatre, build sets, look after the wardrobe and all the other things that have to be done to keep the theatre going. We are always in need of people who have done or helped someone with DIY (big or small jobs) or many of the things that are needed to keep every household going with a hammer, paintbrush or needle and thread. Just come along.
