Capital Project

We are transforming the performance and public spaces in support of our growing creative learning programme and our ever-expanding artistic reach.

We’ve had to raise a lot of money to transform this theatre, to house our growing Creative Learning programme and our ever-expanding artistic reach. Generous supporters have given over £6 million in donations large and small to make our new theatre a reality.

We are grateful for the support of hundreds of donors who have made this project a reality. Our ambitions would not have been realised without your support.


We've been busy...

  • upgrading the theatre auditorium with a flexible stage, allowing for higher production values and greater theatrical experiences
  • increasing capacity in the auditorium and installing new individual seating, bespoke made by RACE Furniture
  • improving sightlines throughout the theatre
  • installing technical bridges and improving access to technical equipment
  • creating more wheelchair positions within the auditorium with access at stalls level and improving accessibility throughout the building, including backstage areas
  • improving and adding toilets
  • increasing our presence on Kilburn High Road with upgraded façade and a new welcoming café that offers drinks and hot food
  • unearthing original features from The Foresters’ Hall
  • improving plant and lowering carbon emissions


We are grateful for the support of the Capital Appeals Committee during our capital project fundraising campaign:
