Caryl Churchill Theatre

Designed by renowned theatre architects Foster Wilson, the Caryl Churchill Theatre was opened in 2013 with a special performance of Tim Crouch's 'my arm.' The whole theatre is fully accessible at all levels, and was shortlisted for a RIBA award in 2014.

The Caryl Churchill Theatre provides a flexible, well-lit and well-equipped space for lecturesseminars and practical study, as well as extra-curricular performances and other events.

The spacious stage area backs onto Workshop 2 for ease of set movement, and also features a Juliet balcony, allowing for the utilisation of spatial levels.

The auditorium is split over three levels; the flexible fold-out rake 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 complemented by ten shuttered windows and a large skylight.

The third level is reserved for technical areas (including the Control Room) parallel with the two motorised 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.
