The Birthday Blaze

Sat 18 Feb between 6pm and 10pm

Sun 19 Feb between 6pm and 9pm

All evening, Grey Street will be transformed with flames and fireworks. Phantoms of fiction will be the hosts for this dazzling masquerade, familiar characters from the theatre's history: the starcrossed lovers, the sisters of fate, the forlorn belle of the ball, a band of thieves, Old Nick and Lady Grey. Prepare to be spellbound as they draw you into their starlit world.

You are most cordially invited to join the celebration.

He waits now, but the clock is ticking...

All events are FREE and take place outside the Theatre Royal

on Grey Street.
