Unicorn Theatre comes to SE1

The Unicorn Theatre is to move to a modern purpose-built theatre in Tooley Street in 2005.

Confirmation that the 11m plan will go ahead comes with the announcement that at least half the funding is already secured.

The Arts Council grant will be 4.5m and the Pool of London Partnership has promised 1m. Unicorn is a children's theatre company founded just over 50 years ago and until recently based in Leicester Square.

The new 350-seat theatre will be built near Potters Fields.

In addition the Unicorn building will include rehearsal space, a gallery and a cafe.
