Theatreplan is working with architects, Bennetts Associates on the transformation of the King’s Theatre in Edinburgh.

King's Theatre, Edinburgh

The architectural designs for the redeveloped theatre show a design that retains the majesty of the original building but reimagines it for the 21st century.

The transformational project will preserve and revitalise the King’s Theatre, one of Scotland’s most loved theatres, making it a vibrant, dynamic and accessible cultural destination for generations to come. Theatreplan’s experience working on historic theatres will be invaluable in planning the repair, enhancement and expansion of one of Scotland’s oldest working theatres. Opened in 1906, The King’s Theatre welcomes over 200,000 visitors every year and is one of a handful of Grade A listed theatres in the UK that has still to have a major redevelopment. It is the only surviving operational theatre by the architects Swanston and Davidson.

The major redevelopment will ensure the theatre can meet the needs of today’s audiences, and today’s performers, and will safeguard it for generations to come. The ambitious redevelopment project will overhaul the interior and exterior of the theatre to enrich the audience experience and create a renewed sense of destination for the King’s Theatre. Transformation of the King’s will reinvigorate the artistic programme, by providing the facilities to attract the very best productions to the city.
