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 and renamed The Redgrave Theatre in his honour after his death.

Originally it was only used for college events, but in the 1970s the decision was made for the theatre to be hired out to local amateur dramatic groups during the holidays.

Today it continues to host some of the same amateur dramatics groups that first visited the theatre back in the 70s as well as a variety of professional touring companies, comedians, film societies, music concerts and dance pieces.There is also a studio space used for rehearsals, as additional changing rooms or for private pre or post show events.
