The UK’s first ever theatre with a revolving auditorium is being lined up for Liverpool as part of plans for a new ‘Ten Streets’ creative district.
The proposed ‘stage-around’ performance space forms part of the multi-million pound vision for the area which is being unveiled today (2 February).
Based on a successful venue in Amsterdam, the new music and theatre space is among a number of other key elements which would contribute to a new urban district transforming former northern dockland.
The ‘Ten Streets’ area, which covers a 125-acre site between the northern edge of the city centre and the landmark Tobacco Warehouse at Stanley Dock, could also include new squares and public spaces and is being put forward as a place for creative and digital businesses to flourish.
Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson says: “The launch of this vision for the Ten Streets district is an opportunity of a lifetime to define Liverpool’s future as a creative powerhouse of the 21st Century.
“For me, this new theatre says everything about our ambition for Ten Streets and how the creative sector can unleash the untapped potential of these once celebrated docklands and make them once again a beacon of economic growth.”
Following a ‘Ten Streets’ launch by Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson and the project’s development partner, Harcourt Developments, the vision will go on display to the public.
From 12-7pm tomorrow (Friday) and 10am until 4pm on Sunday (5 February) an exhibition will be open at the Titanic Hotel on Stanley Dock, before moving to FACT on 8 February and 10 February from 12-7pm.
