    History


    The Royal Lyceum Theatre Company is housed in the Royal Lyceum Theatre, a beautiful Victorian building with a long history. Built in 1883, its early days saw performances by Henry Irving and Ellen Terry, whilst being run by Howard and Wyndham. Throughout the twentieth century and into the twenty-first, the building has remained a theatre space, which was taken over, in 1965, by the Royal Lyceum Theatre Company.
