The Schoolhouse

The Schoolhouse is a hub for creative and digital businesses, located  in a converted 19th century building adjoining the theatre which offers refurbished office space in a prime quayside location close to Law Courts, cafes and restaurants, and with good local transport links including bus, rail and Metro.

Developed and managed by Live Theatre, The Schoolhouse was completed in 2013 and its rental income is channelled back into supporting the theatre’s artistic and education work.

The Schoolhouse is currently home to BSG Ecology on the 1st floor.

The redevelopment was supported by funding through European Regional Development Fund 2007-2013 and Arts Council England.
