Constructed within the grounds of a grade 1 estate this new theatre nestles within the school's arboretum. The theatre provides an intimate performance space for 350 people with associated backstage and gantry facilities. The design incorporates a natural palette of materials including brick, stone, zinc and slate. The finished building provides the school with an invaluable teaching tool as well as a fully functioning theatre for visiting companies.
