Designed by renowned theatre architect W G R Sprague (indeed, the only surviving venue outside of London to be able to make this claim), the Lyceum has been used, as its main purpose over the years, as a rock music venue and a bingo hall. Now, having been restored in 1990, the theatre hosts a regular programme of arts and cultural events from touring West End productions to locally produced shows.
