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.
