Regent Theatre, Stoke-on-Trent


The Grade II* listed Regent Theatre started life in 1929 as a “super cinema” but fell into disuse in the 1980s. Although the auditorium had been subdivided it eventually succumbed to the advance of the multiplex and by the mid 90s was suffering severely from damage and decay.

Our brief was to transform it into a ‘No. 1’ touring venue, able to host the best quality musicals, opera, ballet, drama, popular music and other entertainment events. The magnificent Art Deco auditorium and foyers have been fully restored, and a new larger stage and backstage facilities added.
