His Majesty's Theatre (HMT), Aberdeen

4.3
His Majesty's Theatre (HMT) was designed by the eminent theatre architect Frank Matcham and opened in 1906. HMT attracts a wide and diverse range of top quality theatre productions from musicals to top class drama and dance.

The theatre seats around 1470 people and was reopened in September 2005 following a major £8million re-development . The redevelopment successfully added a modern aspect to an historic Edwardian building and the new facilities have brought the theatre to life both day and night offering 21st century theatre goers a truly memorable experience.

HMT is operated by Aberdeen Performing Arts, a charitable organisation which also operates and manages the Music Hall, The Lemon Tree and Aberdeen Box Office. Put His Majesty's Theatre (HMT) at the forefront of your travel plans using our Aberdeen trip planner.

  • Beautiful theatre, excellent show. Really enjoyed our visit. Only thing I wasn't pleased about was the pre ordering of drinks for intermission. Good idea in theory but your ordered drink is left on a bar table with your ticket, meaning it's accessible to anyone before you get to it. Not a good idea. Perhaps leaving it behind the bar would be a better idea, then just handing your ticket to a member of bar staff to pass to you. You can't be too careful nowadays.
  • Meal at the 1909 cafe before the show - good food and service. Seats in the dress circle to see Club Tropicana - brilliant show. Beautiful theatre 😊
