The Ritz originally opened its doors on the 11th March 1935 opening as a cinema showcasing various movies throughout the next 65 years, until its closure in 1999. The building became derelict and in need of much attention.
Originally from Burton Upon Trent and having visited the Ritz many times throughout our childhood we decided to bring life back into this Grade II listed building and keeping as close to the original Ritz Opera House as we could.
The Original Opera house has been restored with all the original Art deco styling brought back to life making it a spectacular venue to celebrate your special day.

THE BURTON RITZ STORY
The Burton Ritz location is on George Street, Burton Upon Trent. Years ago the venue was ounce The Robins Cinema then became a world food buffet. A couple of years ago it took its toll and had to close down. The Venue has now been fully refurbished and brought back to life under new management.
What has changed though, the original front of the building became separated and became what is known as The Cats Café and the main entrance to The Burton Ritz is now at the rear of the building where you will enter in to the reception area before making your way up stairs to the Elite Suite.
The Burton Ritz re-opened for business in October 2019 hosting its first live music event and there is many more to come. We want Burton to have a place where you can go and enjoy your night out in a luxury venue for years to come. Not only are we setting the venue up for music and entertainment, but also for weddings reception, Corporate events, Private parties or if you are an events organiser then why not host your own event here
