Backstage at the Royal


About Backstage

[email protected], an emerging music initiative, was developed by the theatre team to reimagine our live music venue and provide musicians with the opportunity to bring new music to a live audience.

At a Backstage gig, the audience joins the act onstage for an intimate, cabaret-style event. [email protected] is all about original music and guests range from well-known national names to up-and-coming local bands.
