Making theatre

The National Theatre does everything under the same roof. We create sets, props, armour, wigs and costumes, bringing to life the imaginations of the world’s leading designers, directors and writers.

NT Future has enabled us to maintain and build on the traditional theatrical crafts alongside developments in technology. It has allowed us to accommodate a new paint studio, update the National’s workshops, create design studios, a production office and project spaces for emergent theatre makers.

Over the past ten years we have invested in digital technology and expertise, and now we have brought together our media, digital drawing, video, lighting and sound departments so they have the space and facilities to continue pushing the realms of theatre.

The new spaces are all about people working together across different disciplines, attracting world class innovative artists, and nurturing emerging talent to bring our audiences the theatre of tomorrow.
