Theatre includes No 61 Angel Lane. 1884. Architect J G Buckle with later additions. Commissioned by Charles Silver, actor-manager. Plain exterior. Chanelled stucco ground storey with painted brick upper storeys. Roof not visible. Central range with corner stucco pilasters rising through upper storeys to support cornice and parapet. Central stucco panel with raised inscription reading 'Theatre Royal'. Central oriel window above with enriched stucco apron. Interior retains original ornament and decoration. Two galleries supported by range of cast iron columns. Two boxes flank central proscenium arch. Delicate plasterwork to ceiling, boxes and balcony fronts.
