Parts of the walls and arches of the hospital can be found in the modern theater building, they fit quite organically. The Royal Theater of York was built in place of the Theater in the Ministerial Court, created in 1734 with the support of the city corporation and designed by the architect Thomas Keregan. In 1769, Tate Wilkinson bought a royal patent, giving the right to call the theater royal, and several other privileges. T. Wilkinson, in addition to the York Theater, owned several more in different cities. He owned one of the leading provincial theater companies, which allowed him to attract the best actors of his time to his theaters. Over time, the theater has been somewhat modified and modernized.
