Bloomsbury Theatre main auditorium closure extended

UCL's Bloomsbury Theatre has been closed since June last year after planned building works impacted on a known asbestos problem.

We have a stringent process to manage asbestos so performances at the theatre were suspended until further notice.

It has been difficult to predict the length of the closure given the complexity of the work needed to make the site fit for purpose. The reopening was initially scheduled for early 2016 but the extent of the work required now means the earliest potential re-opening date for the theatre has been put back to early 2018 to allow for an options appraisal to be undertaken.

The Bloomsbury Theatre Studio is unaffected and will continue to operate as normal.

Information regarding the current situation is available from UCL's website
