National Theatre at Broadgate

We’re delighted to announce the launch of an incredible partnership between British Land and the National Theatre, which will see unique creative events and experiences taking place at Broadgate over the coming year. 

Open to everyone on campus, the events are designed to boost your wellbeing, support your return to campus and encourage collaboration and creativity. We will be running monthly workshops led by creative experts, focusing on skills used by theatrical professionals in the rehearsal room and exploring how these can be applied to enhance the working day; from movement, posture, presence, to speech and language techniques.

Separate theatre techniques sessions will demonstrate skills such as Special Effects and Prosthetics in Theatre, enabling attendees to ‘look behind the curtain’ and gain a unique creative insight into how the magic of theatre comes to life.

Running at a range of times throughout the day in Storey Club to accommodate your schedule, the National Theatre sessions will be led by industry professionals to give you an exclusive insight into the creative world of the arts in London. These workshops will provide space for you to enjoy in-person experiences you won’t find anywhere else and aim to make a positive impact on the mental and physical wellbeing of all who work at Broadgate, perfect for easing back into the workplace after working at home.

All sessions will be available to book online and via the Broadgate app. To find out what’s coming up, see the calendar below and book your place now to avoid disappointment.
