Dear Customer,

As of Tuesday 17th March, the Redgrave Theatre closed its doors to all customers in support of the Government's actions to stop the spread of COVID-19 until such time as it is deemed safe for us all to return to the venue. Accordingly, we have made the decision to close the Box Office in order that our staff may remain at home, in accordance with the Government directive. If you have a booking for any of our upcoming shows, we will be in touch with you regarding new dates and your options.

We know this will be disappointing for you, as it is for us, however we are wholly committed to the health and wellbeing of our community and we thank you for your many words of support during this unsettling time.

For any urgent queries contact and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Thank you for your continued support of the Redgrave Theatre and we look forward to welcoming you again soon.

Sue Ellicott

Redgrave Theatre Manager

A Brief History of the Redgrave Theatre

Built in 1966 the Redgrave was originally known simply as the ‘Clifton College Theatre’. The design was based on the Mermaid Theatre in London and was the first purpose built school theatre in the country.

The theatre was officially opened by the actor Sir Michael Redgrave - an ex-student of the college. After Sir Michael's death in 1985 the building was renamed ‘The Redgrave Theatre’ in his honour.
