Discover a music venue set amidst 13th century sandstone caves

Nottingham, Nottinghamshire

Head to Nottingham to catch a performance at one of England’s oldest theatres, then find 13th century caves beneath a former Victorian music hall.

Start your weekend theatre break in Nottingham enjoying High Tea in the Dress Circle restaurant of the 150-year-old Victorian Theatre Royal before settling down to a matinee performance. Afterwards, head over to one of the city’s finest hidden gems for live music and a theatre trip experience like no other.

The Malt Cross is a former Victorian music hall, and once played host to a performance by Charlie Chaplin. Take a tour of the building as part of your cultural holiday and discover the site’s vibrant heritage, including the recent transformation of two basement levels into a music and performing arts hub amidst 13th century sandstone caves. Enjoy fantastic food and drink on site, or take part in one of the special events - such as a gin tasting in the caves.
