Celebrations - Old Theatre Royal
If you are looking for a venue with a unique ambience for that special occasion, The Old Theatre Royal may be just what you need.

Located right in the heart of Bath, one of Europe’s most beautiful cities, the Grade 2 listed building was originally built in 1750, and retains many of its original features.  It also offers great flexibility with spaces ranging from smaller, more intimate rooms to the magnificent Masonic Temple which can be used for larger celebrations, including:

  • Wedding Receptions
  • Birthday Parties
  • Anniversaries

The Temple can be configured for formal dining, with the Ante-Room available for pre-dining reception and post-dining dancing, including space for a DJ. There is also a bar in the Ante-Room. The capacity in this configuration is up to 90.

Alternatively, the entertainment can be located on the stage, with the main area configured with a dance floor and part tabled seating; in this case, seating can be provided in the Ante-Room to create a semi-separate quieter space away from the main area.  The capacity in this configuration is up to 125.   We have regular performers and DJs performing here that we can put you in touch with for your event.

Being within walking distance of the main City Centre churches, including Bath Abbey and St Johns, The Old Theatre Royal is a perfect choice for a formal reception in the daytime, following which it can be reconfigured for a larger evening reception.

For a more intimate private party, the Regency Dining Room seats up to seventy.  The layout can house separate round tables or refectory-style with a top table and two ‘legs’.

Our resident on-site caterers will provide freshly-prepared food from our own kitchens, tailored to your specific needs and ranging from simple finger-buffets to full-service dinners.  There are also two licensed private bars.
