Dramatic Transformation

The next steps 

As the work on the Theatre gets underway hoardings have been erected to keep the works contained and ensure safety.  These are now in place and the next phase of work will commence.

In the coming months we will be concentrating our efforts demolishing and rebuilding one of our main staircases on the Shaftesbury Avenue side of the Theatre, alongside our fire exits.  This will all be carried out within the building but may result in some noise.  Our contractors, Sir Robert McAlpine, will be doing all that is possible to regulate the noise so that disturbance is kept to a minimum.  However, should you have any issues, please contact us.  The working hours will be Monday – Wednesday and Friday 8.00am – 6.00pm; Thursday and Saturday 8.00am – 1.00pm.


Works have now begun…

Now that our building works are underway, we will be starting to install hoarding on both Bloomsbury Street and High Holborn. This is to ensure that we can make our building works as unobtrusive as possible.

1 lane will be closed on High Holborn and 1 lane on Bloomsbury Street will be closed from the 19th of November 2019 as we do investigative works prior to the excavation of our basement box.

Over the coming years the Shaftesbury Theatre will be transforming itself making the beautiful Edwardian building fit for the 21st Century.

Whilst encapsulating the beauty and elegance of the Edwardian era we will be creating a new feature staircase, doubling toilet facilities, upgrading air conditioning, creating better access for people with disabilities and enhancing our foyer and bar areas, all to give our audiences a better experience.

A new entrance will be created opening the Theatre on to Princes Circus, a piazza that will be created alongside Shaftesbury Avenue by Camden Council’s West End Project, and the Theatre’s façade and signage will be upgraded.  The final phase of work will see the interior of the Theatre totally redecorated with new carpets and seats throughout, still in an Edwardian style, but providing more space and greater comfort.

This work is the final phase of a £15 million investment, paid for in part by our Restoration Levy, making the Shaftesbury Theatre welcoming and enjoyable to visit and work at; we hope the best in London’s West End!
