Speaker: Michael Brailey.

The Royal Theatre, which opened in 1884, was designed by the renowned Victorian theatre architect C J Phipps and is a Grade II listed building. In complete contrast, The Derngate was opened in 1983 for Northampton Borough Council.

The Theatre is lucky enough to have a dedicated volunteer archivist Michael Brailey, who maintains a significant archive of Royal and Derngate historical memorabilia.

Visitors £3.00. Refreshments available.
