Birmingham Repertory Theatre

2011- 2013 has marked a change of scenery for Birmingham Repertory Theatre as we underwent re-development as part of the new Library of Birmingham. This exciting venture sees the two cultural venues sharing public spaces and a new purpose-built 300-seat auditorium, plus there has been a much-needed updating of The REP’s backstage facilities.

The Library of Birmingham has been built next door to The REP and is physically integrated with our building. We are joined at ground and first floor levels and share our foyer and the new studio theatre. As the city’s only major producing theatre, the new 300-seat studio theatre has significantly expanded the range and number of dramatic works that The REP can produce and present and offers an exciting new space for collaboration between The REP and the Library of Birmingham.

    The Palace Theatre is a theatre in Redditch, in a Grade II listed building.

    It opened in 1913. It is an example of Edwardian theatre and has received a major refurbishment restoring the theatre to its original state. Funds and grants were provided by Redditch Borough Council (£3M), and £920,500 as part of a £4 million scheme from The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF).

    The Palace building has been used as a variety hall, a cinema, a roller skating rink, and a bingo hall. Since 1971 it has been used exclusively as a theatre.
