Nevill Holt New Theatre

Standing on the prow of the hill, in a glorious position overlooking the Welland valley, audiences gaze out at the view from our Theatre door before turning to the operatic delights inside.

Nic Fiddian Green’s ‘Monumental Horse at Water’ lifts the setting to another dimension, cleverly referencing the building’s original purpose.

Behind the historic stone façade, our new home is now under construction. The temporary scaffold structure which filled the courtyard has been dismantled and our new 400 seat theatre is now rapidly taking shape, to designs by Stirling Prize winners Witherford Watson Mann.

We are combining precious historic elements with modern comfort and facility, using natural materials to heighten the acoustic, and drawing the palette from the colours of the building. Our new theatre will breath new life into this historic building.
