Royal Spa Centre

Welcome...

to the Royal Spa Centre & Town Hall Spring/Summer 2014 brochure. The Royal Spa Centre & Town Hall are operated exclusively by Warwick District Council for the benefit of residents of the District and visitors to the area. We are dedicated to presenting the best available theatre and entertainment to audiences in central Warwickshire and beyond. As household budgets become increasingly tight, we recognise that our customers’ expectations are now higher than ever. We are doing everything we can to ensure that we continue to offer you excellent value for money and a fantastic night out in Leamington Spa! In 2011 major refurbishment works totally transformed the foyers and auditorium seating of the Royal Spa Centre, making it an extremely intimate and comfortable venue to visit. Changes were also made to the programme of performances – attracting a diverse range of entertainment to the venue. In August 2012, the Royal Spa Centre & Town Hall had a change of management and we continue to work hard to implement many initiatives that place our customers firmly at the core of what we do. The Town Hall is one of the most iconic and historic buildings on the Parade. Easily recognisable due to its distinctive clock tower, it is a popular venue for community events, meetings and functions and is also the home of The University of Warwick Learning Hub and Bromford Support.

facilities Our foyers open one hour before all performances. Bars are located on the Stalls and Balcony level and are open pre-show and during the interval. They serve a selection of beer, wine, spirits, soft drinks, hot beverages, confectionery and ice cream. For the majority of performances, interval drinks can be pre-ordered at the bar and may be taken into the auditorium in plastic glasses. Only food and drink purchased from our bars may be consumed on the premises. After the auditorium doors have closed, latecomers may only be admitted at a suitable point in the performance, and at the discretion of the Duty Manager. Sound levels are monitored in accordance with the conditions of the licensing authority. Photography and recording of any kind, including the use of mobile phones, is strictly prohibited within the auditorium. Out of respect to the performers and your fellow audience members, please switch off mobile phones before entering the auditorium.
