Keith Williams Architects have drawn up plans to build a pop up theatre next door on the site of the former Post Office building and these plans are now available for consultation prior to being put forward for consideration by City of Wolverhampton Council.

The public are invited to view an exhibition of the vision on Wednesday 10 October from 12noon to 2pm at Wolverhampton Grand Theatre. CEO and Artistic Director Adrian Jackson will be available along with representatives from the Architects to answer any questions. The exhibition will remain in the theatre until Friday 26 October.

CEO and Artistic Director Adrian Jackson said: "There is a vision to make Lichfield Street the Arts Hub of Wolverhampton City Centre and although the theatre already contributes massively to the local economy, there is so much more we can achieve in the community, for education and cultural enrichment"

Councillor John Reynolds, Cabinet Member for City Economy, added: "This is a bold move by Wolverhampton Grand Theatre to bring a major uplift to the city centre's entertainment offer.

"I would urge people to go along to the public consultation event and take a look at these ambitious plans."
