Arts Centre temporary theatre named!

Warwick Arts Centre has named its new 280 seater temporary theatre, ‘The Goose Nest’ following a student vote lead by the Creative Warwick team at Warwick Students’ Union.

Fourth Year Mathematics Student, Alex Holmes, proposed the name which went on to win 63.5% of a vote hosted by the SU. The theatre, which will be erected in August, will open in October 2017 and will host student society performances over the 2017 -18 programme, as well as professional theatre, comedy and family shows.

The Goose Nest will be open for nine months whilst Warwick Arts Centre’s Theatre and Studio spaces are renovated as part of the venue’s 20:20 project. The three year renovation, refurbishment and redevelopment will see major changes and improvements taking place to the building which dates back to 1974.

Warwick Arts Centre director, Alan Rivett said: “For the past 43 years, Warwick Arts Centre has been a hub for those with a passion for performing arts and we have been committed to nurturing the creativity and talent of young performers. Whilst the building is undergoing some changes, it is vital that our support is not compromised. The Goose Nest will allow student societies to continue to put together and perform some of the very best shows over the coming academic year.”

The Goose Nest will first welcome student societies in the Autumn term, with the Drama Collective Festival and Warwick University Drama Society (WUDS) performing in October and November.  It will officially open on Saturday 7th Oct 2017.
