Details

Join a tour of this fine example of baroque architecture. This grade I building is now a fully operational theatre. Learn of it's history and see a special HOD's performance celebrating the lives of some extraordinary women!

A fantastic opportunity for HOD's visitors to join a guided tour around St. Georges Theatre. View the stunning renovation work that has restored this grade I listed building to a fully functional theatre in the heart of Great Yarmouth.

Hear of it's history and have a chance to see the original "lavish & unique" finishes on the timber columns which experts believe are of major historical significance. The 300 year old finishes were hidden under many layers of paint but appear to still be intact and well preserved.

HOD' s visitors will also see the theatre in operation with a special performance celebrating the lives of some extraordinary women.
