Richmond Theatre
Often disregarded by critics as a suburban venue, Richmond Theatre holds impressive sway with audiences beyond TW9. In terms of gravitas, the gorgeous 1899 building certainly helps – Richmond’s insistence on using questionable celebrities in their pantos (Bonnie Langford as Peter Pan anyone?) does not. Christmas theatre aside, patient locals are rewarded with high-profile fare as productions are often road-tested here before hitting the West End, or stop off as part of a post-West End tour.

Even though Richmond theatre is not in West End, it is as stunning as Garrick or Duke of York. The theatre is not big but perfectly formed, full of history,character and quirky features. It's very often showing great plays as pre-run and after-run to the West End productions so you have a chance to see excellent shows but at the fraction of the price. It's easily reached by the tube, just a few minutes away from the station and there are plenty of restaurants and pubs in the area to compliment your evening.

Gorgeous theatre found on Richmond Green. Popular with locals and it's easy to see why, it offers a great variety of shows and tickets are reasonably priced.

This is such a beautiful, friendly theatre, which combines the best of world-class entertainment with a strong community base. What's not to love?

What a stunning theatre - can’t believe I’ve never visited here before. It sits well alongside equivalent ‘smaller’ west end theatres but also in an idyllic location, overlooking Richmond Green.

The Dress Circle Bar has two lovely terraces to enjoy drinks while looking out at the picturesque scene.

Beautifully adorned inside, the theatre is also (relatively speaking) generous with legroom and comfort.

The ever-changing high-level programme promises enough for me to definitely come back in the near future.

(And of course you are spoiled for choice if you fancy a drink or two after the show).

I love visiting Richmond Theatre. Set on the beautiful Richmond Green, it's one of the nicest places to visit to take in a show.
