£1.5m New Art and Theatre Facilities

The College has an outstanding reputation for Art and Drama and the Education Funding Agency recently awarded the College £1.5m as part of the Building Improvement Fund. With increased numbers of students applying to study Art, Graphic Communication, Textiles and Photography the College needed to update its facilities. The changes to the Theatre will also help the College build on its excellent reputation for Drama and Performance Studies. 

Due to increasingly ambitious productions, such as Alice in Wonderland and The Tempest, performed by the prestigious Paston Far East Theatre Company, the College knew it needed to invest in a new Theatre, including new technical lighting and sound areas. The Theatre has moveable seating to enable ‘in the round’ theatre, a cyclorama, a new entrance and foyer area and new studio areas.
