Lottery funds for theatre in Manchester

Architect Levitt Bernstein Associates and design groups Spencer Landor and Rose-Innes Associates are to benefit from a 17m Lottery grant made to the Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester by the Arts Council.

The grant will enable a major rebuilding project, repairing extensive, but not structural, damage from last year’s terrorist bomb. Some new features will also be introduced to the landmark building.

The theatre will be rebuilt to plans by Levitt Bernstein Associates in London, which has appointed Rose-Innes Associates to develop internal signage.

The theatre has independently appointed London group, Spencer Landor to create a new corporate identity to mark the relaunch, which is planned for November of next year. The consultancy won a proposals pitch for the project against unnamed groups.
