The Yvonne Arnaud Theatre is rightly celebrated for the quality of the productions that are staged there throughout the year.
From pantomime to classic plays to new productions on their way to London, there is always something to see.
What perhaps the many visitors to the Yvonne Arnaud don’t see is the architecture of the building itself.
Designed by local architect, John Brownrigg and completed in 1964, the theatre is a classic example of the optimistic and innovative architecture of the period, and is now Grade II listed.
My illustration represents a view that highlights the bold and clean lines of the original design which are still striking more than 50 years after its opening.
