High Street Thornbury embraced its unique style of grandeur on August 8, 1925, when the opulent Regent Theatre opened its doors. The drive of F.W. Thring, combined with the expansive designs of Sam Millsom and Sons, created this theatrical jewel of the north.
Frank Thring Jnr. developed his love of all things theatrical, and a flair for extravagence, from his exposure when a young lad to the exotic style of Thornbury’s Regent Theatre. Victoria is richer for it.
Sam Millsom did not live to see the opening of The Thornbury Regent Theatre, but a century after his passing, people still respond to the wow factor of Millsom’s vision.
