Images of Wolverhampton Grand Theatre's vision to expand its premises in the city centre have been revealed prior to a planning application being submitted.

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, which 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."
