About Henry Sandon Hall

Worcester Theatres are proud to be partnered with Royal Porcelain Works to offer a select programme of shows throughout the year.

The 1852 showroom is at the heart of the Royal Porcelain Works development, refurbished to become a 140 seat capacity venue, equipped with the latest audio-visual technology.

The ‘Henry Sandon’ Hall is named in honour of Henry Sandon MBE. Born in the East End of London, Henry was educated at the Royal Grammar School in High Wycombe and went on to study music at the Guildhall School of Music before moving to Worcester, where he taught music at the Royal Grammar School and was a lay clerk in the Worcester Cathedral Choir.

In addition to his strong musical background, Henry is a renowned antique expert, specialising in ceramics. A notable authority on Royal Worcester Porcelain, Henry was a curator of the Dyson Perrins Museum for many years.

He is also a writer and television personality and is best known for his many appearances on the much-loved BBC television programme Antiques Roadshow. Henry Sandon was appointed an MBE in the 2008 Queen’s Birthday Honours list.
