Transformation Phase 4


Following the reopening of the Royal Shakespeare and Swan Theatres in November 2010, we continue to improve our Stratford-upon-Avon home for the benefit of visitors and audiences.

The next phase of the Transformation is in its early stages and includes:

  • The return of The Other Place as a new small-scale flexible studio theatre on its original site, with new rehearsal spaces and, for the first time, public access to our costume store
  • The reconfiguration of our Grade II listed costume workshop to ensure this crucial aspect of theatre production remains world class
  • Redevelopment of the Grade II listed Swan Wing, including the creation of a permanent visitor exhibition revealing the theatre making process and opening up fascinating parts of our unique historical collection for the first time

We're now developing further details on all these projects and working to secure the necessary funds. This work will continue throughout 2013.

Heritage Lottery Fund

We're delighted that the Heritage Lottery Fund have approved a stage 1 funding bid to support the redevelopment of the Swan Wing and look forward to submitting further proposals for Stage 2 next year.
