Celebrating 50 Years of World-Class Theatre

On 11th December 2013 we celebrated the 50th birthday of our building – the “new” Nottingham Playhouse was opened in 1963 by Lord Snowdon with a gala performance of Coriolanus, starring John Neville, Ian McKellen, Leo McKern and Michael Crawford, among others.

You can read about the history of the Playhouse here and also enjoy some fabulous memories from our audience members here.
