You can take curve literally, as the award-winning building, designed by acclaimed architect Rafael Viñoly, features a curved façade made from 1,192 tonnes of steel and 46000m² of glass. Impressive, no?

The arts centre was opened in 2008 by Her Majesty The Queen, and uniquely, has no backstage area. Visitors are therefore privy to the inner-workings of the theatre (making the possibility of famous-actor-spotting very real).

The building is managed by Leicester Theatre Trust.
