Liverpool theatres to be overhauled, but not until city's Capital of Culture title has been and gone

  • Comment
A search has been launched to find an architect to mastermind the revamp of two major theatres in Liverpool.

The Liverpool and Merseyside Theatres Trust wants to appoint a design team to radically overhaul the Everyman Theatre ( pictured), as well as refurbishing the ageing Victorian Playhouse.

Estimated to cost around £35 million, the schemes are not expected to start until 2009 - the year after the city's Capital of Culture celebrations finish.

The rebuilding of the Everyman Theatre will be the most ambitious part of the project, with £8 million set aside for the project.

It is understood most of the existing building in Hope Street will be flattened to make way for the new auditorium.

The trust is looking for a team made up of theatre consultants, acousticians, a project manager, a quantity surveyor and a planning supervisor. The deadline for 'requests to participate' is 8 December.
