The new theatre venue in the centre of Southampton
This ‘State of the Art’ theatre allows City College to provide students with the very best training facilities in performing arts and technical theatre in the region.
The college will use the impressive facilities to nurture the city’s artistic talents and plans are already in the pipeline to provide workshops and summer schools to under 16s. It will further enhance learning for students on the college’s Technical Theatre and Event Management, Musical Theatre, and Performing Arts courses, and also allow the college to provide bespoke technical theatre training to its staff and those already working in the theatre industry.
The 240 capacity theatre has been equipped with £1m worth of top-of-the range equipment. The new venue, along with a contemporary styled foyer, bar and adjoining restaurant, are expected to make the theatre a popular choice for commercial hire and will play an important part in hosting a whole range of community performances, touring productions, comedy evenings as well as business events.
