Civic Trust Awards 2022

The project to restore Theatre Royal Drury Lane in London has been recognised at the 2022 Civic Trust Awards, celebrating outstanding design in the built environment.

Congratulations to architects Haworth Tompkins for its recent project at Theatre Royal Drury Lane that was highly commended in the AABC Conservation Award category at the 2022 Civic Trust Awards. The project restored the historic theatre to its former 1812 glory, with improvements to its foyers, auditorium, and stage technology.

We supported the development of the plans through an Advisory Review, a peer review process targeted at theatres developing capital projects. The theatre reopened late 2021, and the work will sustain and support the ongoing vitality and viability of this important Grade I listed theatre into the future.

Haworth Tompkins is a Theatres Trust Corporate Supporter.

Details about the restoration can be found on the Civic Trust Awards website.
