Transformation - the next stage


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 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
  • Restoration of the Grade II listed Swan Wing, including the creation of a new exhibition revealing the history of how we make our world famous productions. The project is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund
  • The reconfiguration of our Grade II listed costume workshop to ensure this crucial aspect of theatre production remains world class

Work has now begun on The Other Place project and the Swan Wing restoration, with openings planned for 2016 to coincide with 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death.
