Winner 2018 – Entertainment Venue of the Year.

Shortlisted 2019 – RICS Community Benefit Award.

The redevelopment of the city centre venue was the first major work to be carried out since 1998 and opened up Unity Theatre’s spaces to a greater number, and broader mix of people, with major alterations being made to ‘public spaces’ such as the entrance, foyer and first floor bar.

Improved soundproofing between Unity Theatre’s two performance spaces allow for both venues to be used together more often and, as a result, create more opportunities for work and artist development, as well as increasing revenue.
