Theatre space in the heart of Clifton with a 10m x 10m stage and a capacity of 319. Available for hire all year round, details on how to contact us available at: Built in 1966 the Redgrave was originally known simply as the ‘Clifton College Theatre’. The design was based on the Mermaid Theatre in London and was the first purpose built school theatre in the country. The theatre was officially opened by the actor Sir Michael Redgrave - an ex-student of the college. After Sir Michael's death in 1985 the building was renamed ‘The Redgrave Theatre’ in his honour. Originally the theatre was only used for college events, but in the 1970’s the decision was made for the theatre to be hired out to local amateur dramatic groups during the holidays. Since then the popularity of the Redgrave has continued to grow. Today, as well as continuing to host some of the same amateur dramatics groups that first visited the theatre back in the 70's, the theatre plays host to a variety of professional touring companies, comedians, film societies, music concerts and dance pieces.
