WELCOME TO THE ASSEMBLY ROOMS THEATRE
2.4MILLION INVESTMENT FOR THE ASSEMBLY ROOMS THEATRE
We are thrilled to announce the Durham Universities major investment in theatre.
Today, Durham University has declared plans for a £2.4 million redevelopment to renovate and restore our building, the stunning and historic Assembly Rooms Theatre.
This development will see a dramatic change to our building for the benefits of audience and visiting artists. The redevelopment will drastically improve disabled access to the 220-seat venue, restore the 150 year old theatre’s original ceiling, and refurbish its Box Office area. The renovated playhouse will also include improvements to the workshop, dressing room, and toilet facilities for future artists to enjoy.
