Extension to Malvern Theatres


Malvern Theatres

Speller Metcalfe was contracted to undertake a £2.25 million extension to Malvern Theatres.

The works included a 310 square metre extension, designed to create a new vibrant and inviting entrance to the theatre.

Additional space for educational and community use will enable the theatre to increase the number of workshop places from 2,500 to 14,500 per year with regular weekly classes in dance, movement, drama, music, acting and film-making all part of the initial programme starting from September.

The new development has been designed to ensure that it is accessible for all including disabled access to the theatre from the Grange Road entrance, which has also been improved.

As part of the new development, a new Changing Places facility has been built in the theatre.

Changing Places toilets are larger, accessible toilets for people with disabilities. The new facility at Malvern Theatres includes a changing bed, shower, hoist, adjustable sink and compliant WC.

Work began in September 2022 and the Theatres officially opened on Saturday 15th July 2023.
