New Public Spaces

Viewing Gallery

Overlooking the Corn Exchange, the new top lit viewing gallery will flood this area with natural light. From here you can peer into the Corn Exchange and see creativity happen such as rehearsals. This space will be open to the public and there will be innovative displays about our history and heritage you can peruse though.

It will also be great for circulation and meetings, making it perfect for events, exhibitions or private hire


Welcome Area

A new visitor entrance on New Road will open up our building and make a visit more welcoming and accessible. We are also creating exciting and innovative exhibition displays about our history and trail blazing performance history. 

The Hall

The Corn Exchange entrance on Church Street will also be revived into a bright and airy space. For the first time ever all our venues will be connected and you will be able to explore the building whether you are visiting for a show or just looking for a cuppa and a wander.
