Major Redevelopment Project
Jacksons Lane1 Nov — 15 Jul
Jacksons Lane is set to begin a multi-million pound redevelopment project to transform and future-proof our Grade II-listed arts centre, with construction work starting in November 2020 and our building set to reopen in July 2021.
The wide-ranging redevelopment across our building will focus on improved accessibility, better audience experience, modernised studios, flexible working environments and a dramatically expanded foyer space, making sure we're fit for a post-Covid world and keep our position as the UK’s leading venue for contemporary circus and creative learning.
The project will be overseen by architects Citizens Design Bureau, best-known for their award-winning work on the Royal Court Theatre. The firm’s director Katy Marks was Project Architect on the redevelopment of the Everyman Theatre in Liverpool, which won the 2014 Stirling Prize for best new building – the UK’s highest architectural accolade.
The work is largely being funded by £2.1 million from the Arts Council England’s Large Capital Grants scheme, funded by the National Lottery, and £1.25 million from Haringey Council.
