South Bank Arts Building by Architect Denys Lasdun, London, England, UK
14 Jun 2009
Royal National Theatre
Location: South Bank, London
Date built: 1967-76
Design: Denys Lasdun Architect
The riverside forecourt of the theatre is used for regular open-air performances in the summer months. The terraces and foyers of the theatre complex have also been used for ad hoc experimental performances. The decor is frequently dynamic, with recent displays of grass turf as ‘outside wallpaper’, different statues located in various random places and giant chairs and furniture in the forecourt. The National Theatre’s foyers are open to the public, with a large theatrical bookshop, restaurants, bars and exhibition spaces.
Backstage tours run throughout the day and the Sherling High Level Walkway, open daily until 7.30 pm, offers visitors views into the backstage production workshops for set construction and assembly, scenic painting and prop-making.
The Clore Learning Centre is a new dedicated space for Learning at the National Theatre. Offering events and courses for all ages, exploring theatre-making from playwriting to technical skills, often led by the NT’s own artists and staff.
