The Big Project

Whilst retaining and protecting the Edwardian features and charm of the theatre, the Big Project will create new opportunities for everyone to enjoy.

For generations, The Kings Theatre has been a place where people enjoy theatre. Whether sat in the audience, acting on stage or simply marvelling at a beautiful building that has so much to tell us about the past, ‘The Big Project’ has been developed to ensure The Kings Theatre stays with us for many generations to come.

Building on the success of the last 15 years, the Kings Theatre's Big Project is a programme of restoration and development of both its buildings and programme.


Designated as Grade II* by English Heritage and named 'a theatre of national architectural importance' by the Theatres Trust, we're going to continue to restore the theatre in keeping with its heritage status.

Education & Community

The Kings has always been about people. The Big Project will build on our talks, tours, workshops and events for people of all ages to enjoy.


We have plans to draw in visitors from across the region to improve and regenerate the local economy.
