This project forms the first phase of the Aylesbury Waterside development which will see the replacement of the old Civic Centre with the new theatre. Aylesbury Vale District Council is leading the renewal of Aylesbury town centre. Completion is expected in Spring 2010 and the opening of the theatre in late summer / early autumn.
Planning is now underway to deliver the enhancements to the immediate environment which will include a large open public space at the front of the theatre.
The theatre is of regional proportion with a 1,200-seat auditorium that converts into a 1,800-capacity hall for standing events, and a 225-seat suite for smaller events including dance, drama, meetings and conferences.
