Building The Future: Central’s New North Block Development

The North Block is scheduled to open in Autumn 2018, and we are currently in the process of raising the final £1m of this £16.7m project, with several opportunities available for potential supporters.

Central's new North Block building will house five large, double-height studios

Central’s continued success has led to a pressing need for the creation of additional space for teaching on its existing campus at Swiss Cottage.

The North Block, designed by award-winning team at Tim Ronalds Architects, will be a new building on campus that will provide a major increase in rehearsal and performance space for students, as well as creating a new asset for the local community.

The new building will house five large, double-height studios including:

  • A performance studio with flexible capacity for use as a galleried theatre
  • A sound studio with facilities that prepare students to work at the highest standards in broadcast, film, and digital media
  • A movement studio with sprung floors
  • Two fully equipped rehearsal studios
  • A full range of ancillary spaces including new dressing rooms and teaching rooms
  • A new, larger workshop that will join with the existing scenic painting studio in the West Block, linking the two buildings.

The North Block is scheduled to open in Autumn 2018, and we are currently in the process of raising the final £1m of this £16.7m project, with several opportunities available for potential supporters.

We are extremely grateful to the following supporters for their significant contributions towards this important project, and of course to all those supporters who wish to remain anonymous.
