10 Things You Can Do at Liverpool's Royal Court
Published on 20 September 2017
1. The most obvious one; go and see a show. LJMU students can get tickets to our shows for £5 depending on dates. Speak to the LJMU Student Opportunities team to find out more. Not an LJMU student? Our productions are reasonably priced and tickets during opening week start from £13 pp.
2. Have dinner in the theatre, right at your seat before the show. You can pay £12 extra on top of your ticket to eat before the show. Everything you need right under one roof.
3. History buffs can book on to one of our Heritage tours to meet the friendly (we think) ghosts of the building and learn about our roots – it’s pretty interesting, if you’re into that sort of thing.
4. Go for a drink and some food at the Courtyard Bar & Kitchen, which is just next door to the theatre. Uni pals will be well jel of your Instagram pictures inside the place. Plus, you can get three bar bites for less than a tenner. #Bargain
5. People watch from the Foyer. Deadlines will come knocking at your door, but why not bring your laptop and do some work from our café? You can procrastinate by watching people get off the 10A. Free Wifi, excellent coffee and enough snacks to keep you going for those 200 words you are determined to write.
6. Spend a few hours browsing our archives at LJMU’s Aldham Robarts Library. Why not put off that deadline for even longer? It’s free but you’ve got to book on.
7. Join our Youth Theatre. Don’t want to be an actor/actress when you graduate? Not a problem. It’s free, it’s fun and did we say it’s free already? Open to all you youngsters aged 11 – 25.
8. Go to the library. Yes we are being serious. We are putting on a performance of Terriers, a play about gang culture in Central Library (the one by the museums just off Lime Street Station). Come and see the show on 10th October.
9. Watch the world pass you by on our terrace. Perfect views across the city for those #nofilter snaps of a cool autumn sunset. Even better, have a drink whilst you are up there.
10. Been crushing on that person off your course who sits two rows in front of you? Why not pluck up the courage and ask them on a date to the theatre. We’ve got two seater couches that you can snuggle up to each other on whilst watching a show. *pretends to yawn whilst putting arm across date’s shoulder*
