Lots to look forward to in new Riley Smith Theatre
The Riley Smith Theatre is back with an exciting new line-up. We know everyone has been missing it so we were really keen to make sure the space was handed back to all our clubs and societies as soon as possible even though there is still a bit of work to be done to the backstage areas. However our favourite venue has been given a fresh new look with two new lifts, an increased capacity of 480 people, as well as multi-coloured retractable seating, so it can seamlessly switch from theatre to open space.
We can’t wait to show off the Riley in all of its glory with tonnes of society and external performances already planned for this term. Here’s a sneak peek of what’s coming up for term one.
