Today the 126-year-old theatre stands on the precipice of a new era with its Preservation Trust, chaired by Vanessa Toulmin, working tirelessly to restore it to its former glory.
A look through our archives revealed a whole host of pictures taken at the theatre. Some are from way back while others feature events hosted at the theatre more recently.
From beer festivals and comedy shows to pantomimes and performances, events at the landmark building have drawn many photographers over the years.
We hope you enjoy our selection of pictures.
