THEATRE PRODUCTION company Selladoor Worldwide has announced it expects to open a new multi-space theatre and performing arts hub in the former Greenwich Borough Halls in spring 2021.
The Greenwich Festival Theatre will boast a 650-capacity main auditorium and a 240-seat flexible “black box” space.
Although the venue will primarily host theatrical and West End-style productions, the company says that concerts will be a significant part of the entertainment mix.
“We plan to develop the Borough Halls into our flagship London venue,” says Selladoor CEO David Hutchinson. “The theatre will have its own artistic leadership, with a year-round curated programme of events.
“The Borough Halls is brilliantly placed as an iconic building in the heart of the borough. We aim to build audiences, create jobs and make Greenwich a destination for daytime and evening economies.”
Sellador operates venues such as the Pavilion Theatre (cap. 600) in Blackpool, The Landmark (480) in Ilfracombe and Peterborough New Theatre (1,140).
