Unique Specialist Knowledge

theatresearch is the UK’s leading historic theatre consultancy, specialising in theatre conservation and restoration whilst making the buildings fit for purpose in the 21st century.

Formed on Christmas Day 1985 when the Tyne Theatre and Opera House suffered a major fire which severely damaged the fly tower and the theatre’s historic stage machinery – almost 40 years later we are now involved in historic theatre restoration projects throughout the British Isles.

We have the ability to develop in collaboration with clients key funding strategies for projects, having written successful National Lottery Heritage Fund (NLHF) bids worth well over £20million. In conjunction with this we are able to develop cohesive Conservation Plans, and write technical equipment specifications.

Our extensive theatre archives support the practice and are provided as “open access” to all our clients – we also develop Interpretation and Exhibition strategies which support the outputs required by the NLHF.

Our Services

theatresearch offers a wide range of services from consultancy to period television services thorough to consultants in heritage lottery applications.
