Reasons for trip

The Savoy Theatre is located on the site of the oldest theatre in Wales.

It was renovated in 1927 including restorations of the original woodwork, murals and lighting. It is locally owned and run by local volunteers and theatre enthusiasts.

The theatre is a welcome addition to local culture as a venue for many famous theatre troupes and entertainers including comedians, singers, musicians.

Recently, the theatre updated its digital equipment to present high definition films at the cinema.

I always receive a warm welcome at The Savoy. For added comfort you will find on offer a coffee bar and a drinks bar open along with a well-stocked snack bar.

This theatre is such a pleasure to visit just for the sake of the interior decorations.

The owners believe in giving back to the community. They offer the local youth the opportunity to explore the world of theatre and drama by allowing them to rehearse and perform their own amateur productions on the ample stage.

The Savoy Theatre is located on Church Street in the town centre which is the only cobblestone street that remains in the town. There are several local cafes and restaurants located on and off this street in the adjoining courtyard. So you can always plan to make it a dinner and a show without fear of missing the show.

There is only one restroom located inside. There are a few steps to negotiate but it is possible for wheelchairs to access the theatre with some help.

All together a The Savoy is a great family theatre at the heart of the community of Monmouthshire and one not to be missed when visiting the area.
