Welcome to our new home
The new Royal Shakespeare and Swan Theatres are now open. We look forward to welcoming you to our new home.
We launch with a series of events, exhibitions and tours to welcome you, test our facilities and bring life to our new theatres. In February 2011, our Ensemble returns to present the first full productions on the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and Swan Theatre stages.
This is one of the world's most iconic theatrical sites. It represents a mix of Shakespearean performance, history and biography that's unique. Our challenge is to marry the best elements of the existing buildings with the brief we've outlined for the auditorium, backstage and audience facilities.
This is a once in a generation opportunity both for the RSC and Stratford-upon-Avon. We need the help of all our supporters to realise our vision."
