The RSC has reached its £3 million fundraising target to redevelop its 70-year old costume workshop on Waterside.

Work on the historic Grade II listed building is due to start in the next few weeks, after a long period of site preparation. The workshop will be conserved and extended with a new entrance being constructed.

Other improvements include a larger fitting room and millinery and jewellery, dyeing and print workshops. They also hope to take on apprentices and welcome visitors for tours.

Work is due to be completed by summer 2020.
