Want to help shape the future of touring theatre in The Midlands?

November 21, 2018

Federation members are warmly invited to a VIP reception celebrating the launch of the Midlands' newest touring theatre venue: The Macready Theatre, Rugby on December 5th 2018.

From January next year, we are re-launching Rugby School's beautiful Victorian theatre as the region's only professional receiving house. This will give the area a welcome economic boost and theatre companies a chance to reach new and diverse audiences. And as part of our on-going commitment to creating sustainable cultural opportunities for all, we are offering 1/3 of our seats to touring productions in the theatre free of charge to local school groups, giving hundreds of children the chance to see live professional theatre on their doorstep and at no cost each year. 

We are looking for partner organisations, producers, companies and artists to help us build an exciting programme of work to share with our community. If you'd like to be part of this project, find out more or to register your place at the launch event, please contact Tim Coker, Artistic Director, Macready Theatre, Rugby at tdc@rugbyschool.net
