Edwardian Group acquires Manchester's historic Theatre Royal

The five-star, 263-bedroom Radisson Blu Edwardian Manchester is set to expand after its owners acquired the adjacent Theatre Royal.

Originally believed to have been an inspiration for the exterior of the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, the theatre, which opened in 1845, has over the years been a cinema, bingo hall and nightclub before being abandoned.

The Radisson Blu Edwardian, which opened as a hotel in 2004, is currently home to two restaurants, Alto and Steak & Lobster at Alto and Opus One, and the Sienna Spa.

Owned by Jasminder Singh, the Edwardian Group has 14 hotels - 12 in London, one in Guildford and one in Manchester. All, except the one in Guildford, are owned by the company.
