Wez Builds a Theatre is a podcast when you get to create your own arts venue from scratch.

Fancy building a theatre truly from scratch? In this podcast, Wez endeavours to do just that – and he wants you to build your own theatre too!

Wez Builds a Theatre is a podcast when you get to create your own arts venue from scratch. Think The Sims, but for theatres. In this special one-off live recording at Contact, Wez speaks to Artistic Director Matt Fenton and other special guests about what is it like to execute a building project in a real-life theatre, asking:

How do you decide what to build?

What was amazing about the project? What wasn’t so amazing?

Is there anything you would do differently?

Find out all about Contact’s redevelopment, and other exciting building projects, in this one-off live recorded special within Contact’s transformed walls.

You can find Wez Builds a Theatre on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and all good streaming platforms, and you can follow Wez on his theatre-building adventures at @WezBuilds.
