The Octagon Theatre

The Octagon Theatre


£10m development for The Octagon Theatre’s exciting plans to improve the existing building. Plans address essential improvements including disability accessibility requirements, extensions, replacement seating and air conditioning. In addition there are proposals to upgrade the front of the building and create more space for rehearsal studios for actors, students and youth theatre – it will provide more room for community work and improve production and backstage facilities, meeting and office spaces.

Delivery Timescales

  • The current timescale predicts that the Octagon building will close in Summer 2018 and re-open in early 2020.
