The main auditorium and The Lantern are closed throughout our transformation programme which began in June 2018.

This project will bring back to life an iconic building with a sympathetic modern touch and will deliver a venue fit for a leading European, national and regional centre for the performing arts.

To read about our new main auditorium, the development of The Lantern, the creation of a new performance space in our historic cellars and to view artistic impressions visit our Transformation pages.
