Richmond Theatre opened on 18 September 1899 with a performance of As You Like It. One of the finest surviving examples of the work of theatre architect Frank Matcham, it is listed Grade II*.
For over 400 years, Richmond Green has been edged by houses and premises built to provide accommodation for people serving or visiting nearby Richmond Palace. In 1625 Charles I brought his court here to escape the plague in London and by the early 18th century these had become the homes of "minor nobility, diplomats, and court hangers-on".
