Work will take place over the next 18 months on the revamp of Nottingham’s Theatre Royal following grants from Nottingham City Council and the Arts Council England and is due to be completed by Autumn 2017.
The work will see improvements to both the Theatre Royal and the Royal Concert hall with £1.5 million pounds being granted by the Arts Council England and a further £1.8 million from Nottingham City Council.
The work will take place over the next 18 months and the theatre will remain open during the work. Improvements will be made to the backstage areas, stage doors and will also enable better disabled access. The box office, entrance foyer, conference rooms will also undergo improvements.
