Invest News

Nottingham based theatre company and cultural studio, Nonsuch, today announce their brand new creative studio venue, set to open this Spring. Nonsuch Studios will be an expansion of the company’s existing rehearsal and event space offer, currently based on Clarendon Street, where they’ve been located since 2015. The heart of the space will be the new 110 seater studio theatre and performance space, the only independent space of its kind in Nottingham.

Nonsuch Studios is set to cover 9000 square feet, increasing studio and rehearsal rooms to 5 individual spaces. The space will also include a cafe/bar, and will provide office and creative co-working space for artists, producers and creatives alike. The new studios will be located at a former signage distribution centre at 92 Lower Parliament Street at the bottom of Hockley, in the city centre and the heart of Nottingham’s Creative Quarter.

People who work and live in the Creative Quarter have been helping to influence the plans to transform the 40-acre scrub land behind BioCity and the BBC building, known as the former Boots Island site.

Architects, local residents, Sneinton market tenants, local business owners and festival organisers were amongst those who fed back on plans to create a brand new mixed-use scheme which will expand the Creative Quarter.

The team behind this development - Conygar, Lavignac and FutureCity, presented initial ideas on how to breathe new life into the site while embedding and embracing Nottingham’s culture.

This is one of the largest regeneration sites outside of London in private ownership and presents a really exciting opportunity for Nottingham and its already thriving Creative Quarter
