Rose Playhouse Bankside
The Rose Theatre Trust
NLHF Heritage Grants
The Rose Playhouse Bankside, preserved beneath Rose Court, Park Street, Southwark was built in 1587 and was one of London’s first theatres. The Rose was re-discovered during archaeological excavations in 1988/89 and the well-preserved remains provided unique information about Elizabethan theatres and provided a unique window into life in this area of London 400 years ago. The Rose Revealed project has been devised to investigate, preserve, display and interpret the Rose Theatre.
Tricolor was appointed to research and develop an Activity Plan to support a second-round application to the National Lottery Heritage Fund which enabled people to learn about the heritage of the Rose and its place in the development of Elizabethan theatre and drama. Tricolor undertook a detailed Business Plan, supporting the organisation in governance development, operational planning and partnerships.
