Originally we had four phases of work planned to complete the renovation of the theatre.
In 2015, an opportunity arose to purchase the Penny Farthing public house next door to the theatre. This had long been an eye sore at a key gateway for visitors and tourists arriving at Lime Street Station from other parts of the UK.
During Act Four we transformed the existing building and opened it as Courtyard Bar & Kitchen to supplement current pre-show food provision in the theatre in autumn 2017. For more details go to www.courtyardbk.com
In the future, the intention is to join the existing Penny Farthing building onto the theatre at third floor level thus creating the additional backstage facilities and spaces for the Youth Theatre and Community Choir to meet. This replaces our original Act lV which featured ‘pods’ on the side of the building and a new rooftop bar.
