Council gives thumbs-up to Keith Williams' Marlowe Theatre refurb

  • Comment
Canterbury City Council has given the go-ahead to Keith Williams Architects’ planned £24 million revamp of the 1930s Marlowe Theatre.

The practice won the contract in March last year, seeing off competition from Levitt Bernstein, RHWL, John McAslan + Partners, and Burrell Foley Fisher.

The project will feature a sweeping glass foyer and will incorporate parts of the existing building such as the fly tower, increasing the auditorium’s seating from 900 to 1,200.

A smaller 150-capacity venue will also be built, along with rehearsal areas, a piazza forecourt, a café and bars.

Work will start in early 2009 and the theatre is expected to reopen in 2011.
