Friday Night Social Evenings

Friday is Social Night at the theatre, where members, their guests and any prospective members can meet in our fully-stocked bar for a drink and a chat in an informal, friendly atmosphere. There’s also some light entertainment, such as raffles, quiz sheets, games (with cash prizes!) and other surprises that we arrange from time to time. The bar is open from 8.30.

Quiz Nights

The famous Royalty Quiz nights are back in full swing. Usually held the Saturday evening following each production, they take place in the Green Room and are open for members and non-members alike. Let our resident quizmaster, Billy Towers get those little grey cells working overtime with a series of teasers, puzzles and pictures.

Quiz nights start at 8.30pm sharp – get there in good time to secure a table!

Social Play Reading

Now and again, we organise informal play script readings. These are social events that anyone is welcome to attend. Please look our for dates listed on our Facebook site.

Sunderland Floral Art Club (Established 1961)

You Don’t Have To Arrange Flowers!!

The Club is the oldest Floral Art Club in Sunderland and we celebrated fifty years in 2011.

We are a local branch of NAFAS who enjoy flower arranging & demonstrations, gardening, social events and helping local charities (Registered Charity No 1101348).

We meet in the Studio, at the Royalty Theatre on the 3rd Tuesday of each month beginning at 2pm. The Club also holds a Christmas Open Evening Demonstration in the Main Theatre at the Royalty.

We are a small and friendly flower club so we can offer you the opportunity to learn the art of flower arranging by watching experienced demonstrators create multiple flower arrangements, all of which are raffled at the end of the demonstration. We also arrange events such as flower festivals, coffee mornings, outings and luncheons so whether you are a complete beginner, an accomplished arranger or someone who would simply like to enjoy the social side of the club with like minded people, you will be very welcome to join us.

Full annual membership is £25 or you can join us as a visitor for £4 per meeting.
