Leicester Haymarket

    It’s been 11 years but the Haymarket Theatre is finally reawakening with the help of a brand-new team and vision.

    Leicester City Mayor Sir Peter Soulsby announced his intention to support Haymarket Consortium Limited’s proposal to re-open the city centre venue by investing £3.6 million in the building.

    The Haymarket Consortium are a group of individuals brought together from a variety of backgrounds to tackle the challenge of bringing the building back to life. The consortium comprises Jed Spittle (financial/artistic), John Jenkins (premises/licensee), Ellyn Phillips (training/artistic) and Natalie Cheary (PR/marketing).

    The Haymarket is hired out as a venue for theatre productions, e-sports tournaments, live music, awards, parties and conferences. The main auditorium has been refurbished with 901 new seats, sound desks and lighting systems, as well as the installation of a café, licensed bar and TV gallery. The foyer, studio theatre and entrance areas have been modernised, while retaining the original feel of the old Haymarket Theatre.
