Nuffield Laboratory is our creative development programme for theatre-makers and companies, based here at the Nuffield Theatre in Southampton. It is a space where we collaborate with artists at all stages in their careers to experiment with new ideas; a creative hub for exploration and discovery. All the work for our stage is developed through our Laboratory, right alongside our unique opportunities for theatre-makers from Hampshire and across the UK to explore new creative projects and ideas or to hone and develop theatrical craft.
