Situated up on Hope Street, between the two cathedrals, the new Everyman opened in March 2014 to great acclaim from audiences and critics, winning the 2014 RIBA Stirling Prize for Architecture. Accessible and environmentally sustainable, the new theatre combines the trademark wrap-around auditorium and basement bistro with many new facilities. Light, open front-of-house spaces and a pavement café; rehearsal and workshop facilities; a dedicated space for our work with young people and community groups, and a workspace for writers allows the whole building to be a vibrant, creative hub, by day and night. And a beautiful façade, representing the people of Liverpool, expresses the fact that this is truly an Everyman for everyone.
The Everyman is part of the Hope Street CIC, a collaboration of organisations working closely to enhance the experience and offer on what is regarded as the “Best Street in the UK” (Academy of Urbanism 2013).
