The Theatre Royal, Brighton was built due to royal command by King George IV (then, the Prince of Wales) in 1806 and opened in 1807. The first performance was Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Though the theatre’s life started with royal patronage the theatre began to suffer until 1854 when it was purchased by Henry J.N Chart and expanded. The Theatre Royal still stands and is currently owned by the Ambassador Theatre Group. The Theatre Royal, Brighton is a grade II listed building and has regular stage performances to this day.
