Bennetts Associates has secured planning and listed building consent for the second phase of the Shaftesbury Theatre renovation. The proposal includes the redevelopment of public spaces around the Grade II listed theatre and the transformation of its foyers and bars opening out onto, and extending beneath, the newly pedestrianised Princes Circus and transforming the setting of the historic theatre.
The project follows Bennetts Associates’ previous work on Shaftesbury Theatre in 2016, an exceptional refurbishment of the fly tower which received multiple awards including the RIBA National Award in 2018. The second phase of the transformation project will secure the theatre’s long-term future as an important venue in London’s theatreland district. Working in collaboration with the London Borough of Camden’s ambitious Princes Circus re-development, the masterplan will also help integrate the restored theatre with the public realm.
