The theatre also operates a theatre for children and families called The Egg
- Opened in 1805, this historic Georgian theatre is arranged in the classic horseshoe shape and boasts of an atmosphere, which is both intimate and grand. London productions often have previews here or begin their tours at The Royal, after leaving the West End. However, the theatre is also used by local amateur groups, such as the Bath Operatic and Dramatic Society. The newly refurbished interior provides improved leg-room and seating is plentiful, but booking is advised. The best seats are in the stalls and Royal Circle, and each level has its own fully stocked bar. Tickets cost £7-£27. Standby tickets at £5 are available on the day of the performance from noon. Standing tickets are available for sell-out performances - these offer great value for money and there is the added advantage that you'll be first to the bar in the interval.
