Auditorium: Facts and Figures

The world’s first pop-up, plug-and-play theatre.

We built ROUNDABOUT because we’re passionate about new plays and we want as many people as possible to be able to see them. Many places in the country don’t have theatres. Now we can take a theatre to them.

ROUNDABOUT flat packs into a lorry and pops up all over the country. You might find it in a churchyard in Eccles, on a bowling green in Kendal, on Margate seafront, by a lake in Poole Park, on Marsh Farm estate in Luton, on campus in Lincoln.

ROUNDABOUT needs no special skills to assemble and the only tool you need is an Allen key. No piece of the auditorium takes more than two people to carry. It takes six people about a day to pop it up and plug it in, and away we go.

ROUNDABOUT is completely self-contained with state-of the-art LED lighting and surround sound.

We’re proud to present outstanding plays by some of the nation’s finest writers in ROUNDABOUT along with fantastic guest companies and one-off performances and events.

Wherever you are, ROUNDABOUT is coming to a town near you soon.
