Norwich Playhouse

The Norwich Playhouse is a theatre in St George's Street, Norwich, Norfolk, England. It opened in 1995 in a nineteenth-century building that was once a maltings, and is a venue for theatre, comedy, music, cabaret and other performing arts. It seats 300.[1] Television personality and theatre actor Stephen Fry is a patron.

In March 2018 the Playhouse [2] won a Chortle Award, naming it the Best Comedy Venue in the East & Midlands. Norwich Playhouse is a firm favourite with many comedians, including Mark Watson, Tim Minchin, and Sara Pascoe.

The Playhouse Bar is a popular bar attached to the theatre, known for Ceilingopolils (a cardboard cityscape attached to the ceiling of the bar). It recently celebrated its twentieth birthday.[3]
