The gorgeous Caryl Churchill Theatre, opened in April 2013, provides a flexible, well-lit and well-equipped space for lectures, seminars and practical study, as well as extra-curricular performances and other events.
The spacious stage area backs onto the workshop for ease of set movement, and also features a balcony, allowing for the utiilisation of diverse spatial levels.
The auditorium is split over three levels; the flexible fold-out rake (pictured below) seats up to 122, with a further 56 in the gallery above, and all three floors are fully accessible.
The warm brickwork interior of the theatre is beautifully complimented by five huge shuttered windows (that extend to all three levels) and six skylights.
The third level is reserved for technical areas (including the Control Room, which contains the lighting and sound desks) parallel with the two motorised lighting trusses.
The theatre is equipped with the latest audio-visual and lighting equipment, managed by our own in-house team of technicians, offering versatility for both education and performance.
