Like many businesses across the county, COVID-19 has had a devastating impact on Royal & Derngate and Northampton Filmhouse.

Close to 90% of our income comes through ticket sales and bar revenue, all of which was wiped out overnight with the enforced closure of public spaces on 18th March.

As we look towards being able to reopen when it is safe to do so, we are asking our audiences for support. If you can, please play a part in sustaining the future of our theatres and help bring us back together.

Back to your seat,
Back to your feet.                                                        

Back to life-changing experiences from the earliest,
Back to performing together with friends on our stage.

Back to world class theatre made here in your town,
Back to smash-hit shows, the biggest around.

Back to a G&T and the comfort of your favourite screen,
Back to the warmest of welcomes from our Front of House team.

Back to Royal & Derngate.
