• The New Theatre Royal Portsmouth ! Went down a few weeks ago for a site visit ! It truly is a beautiful Frank Matcham Theatre ... painstakingly being restored by the love and support of the people of Portsmouth who love the theatre ...the new stage and back stage is fabulous ! And more work to continue on the front of house in the auditorium but the bar and coffee shop And front of house looking splendid ! Lovely staff too ! So pop along ! They have some great performances on right through the season !
