The Open House festival is taking place this September between 19th - 27th with two of our buildings participating in the diverse programme that will mix digital and in-person events across London. The annual festival's programme looks a little different this year. It will combine building visits, guided and self-guided walking and cycle tours, other events and an online only programme and we are delighted to see Shaftesbury Theatre and The Royal College of Pathologists will be open for visitors to explore and tour.
To book a tour, follow the links below to their individual listing.
The Royal College of Pathologists: The completion of the 4,500sqm building in East London marks the final step in the College’s move from a traditional Grade I listed building in St James to contemporary purpose-built premises. The new building uses materials and artefacts to reflect the character of the Royal College, with social areas, staff offices and education spaces that reference the college’s history and look to its future.
Shaftesbury Theatre: Built in an elaborate Renaissance style with high level Diocletian windows and a prominent grand cupola. The new Fly Tower is a contemporary intervention that accommodates the Theatre’s technical requirements within a unified geometry.
