Venue Tours

As the UK’s first purpose-built repertory theatre, The Old Rep occupies a unique place in theatre history. This iconic theatre, built by Sir Barry Jackson, played a central role in the early careers of many of the UK’s most celebrated actors and theatre makers. Since 2018, we have opened our doors to reveal a fascinating history with our behind the scenes tours.

The tour lasts around 1 hour and 30 minutes. At the end you will be provided with tea, coffee and biscuits. Standard tour tickets cost £10.50*.
