Curve is a state-of-the-art theatre based in the heart of the Leicester’s Cultural Quarter. Opened in 2008 by Her Majesty The Queen, the award-winning building, was designed by acclaimed architect Rafael Viñoly.
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 our Café. The curved façade is made from 1,192 tonnes of steel and 46000m² of glass.
Managed by Leicester Theatre Trust, Curve is a registered charity providing engaging world-class theatrical experiences.
