About

Curve

Curve is a spectacular, state-of-the-art theatre in the heart of Leicester’s vibrant Cultural Quarter.

Opened in 2008 by Her Majesty The Queen, the award-winning building designed by acclaimed architect Rafael Viñoly offers a completely unique visitor experience. Unlike any other theatre in the UK there is no traditional backstage area.

Audiences can enjoy the full theatre making process, peek behind the scenes and maybe even spot an actor or two dashing from the stage to their dressing room or enjoying a coffee in the café. The building’s stunning curved façade is made from 1,192 tonnes of steel and 46,000 square metres of glass.

Managed by Leicester Theatre Trust, Curve is a registered charity providing engaging theatrical experiences for the community. Working with people of all ages and backgrounds, the theatre is committed to nurturing new and emerging talent, as well as creating world-class productions.

The theatre is also available to hire for conferences and events. Whether you are looking for a place to hold your next meeting or planning a show-stopping awards ceremony, product launch, conference or exhibition, the venue can host up to 1,600 people across its 10 flexible and distinctive spaces. Combining technical capability with theatrical inventiveness, Curve creates and delivers outstanding and impactful events.
