Darlington Civic Theatre closed for 18 months on 31 May 2016 for a major £12 million restoration project made possible by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Darlington Borough Council, corporate and individual giving, and bequests from trusts and foundations. Regenerated and transformed, this Grade II Listed building will re-open in autumn 2017 on its original, expanded site, re-named Darlington Hippodrome, a version of the theatre's original name. For more information on the restoration please visit Our Restoration Blog.
We still have 1.6 million to raise. Every penny of your donation will go directly to the restoration of your theatre, taking it forward into the next chapter of its incredible, enduring story.
