New Building Better Theatres Workshop ‘A New Life for Historic Theatres’ open for bookings

24th February 2016

  • ‘A New Life for Historic Theatres’ is a new one-day workshop providing advice and guidance to groups in the early stages of bringing historic theatres back to life
  • Book now to attend the Workshop on 5 May at our central London Resource Centre
  • This is the final Workshop in our Autumn 2015 – Spring 2016 season of our Building Better Theatres Workshop Programme, which returns again in Autumn 2016

Groups working to restore and reopen historic theatres face many challenges. They need to have an understanding of theatre architecture, building projects and the conservation of historic buildings, as well as governance, business planning and fundraising. It can be hard to know where to start or who to turn to in the early stages of a theatre project to ensure its success.

‘A New Life for Historic Theatres’ our new one-day workshop, held in our central London Resource Centre on 5 May 2016, will offer a clear route through the early stages of a project. It will bring together a range of case studies and experienced practitioners to provide practical advice and information to campaign groups and organisations looking to manage a successful restoration project.
