Time capsule at The Old Vic Backstage extension

June 2024

While works progress on the exciting new extension ‘Backstage’ for the Old Vic Theatre, the foundations of the new building now include the burial of a time capsule.

Items in the time capsule included a piece of lighting equipment signed by Dame Judi Dench, part of the auditorium’s red velvet seats and famous chandelier, signed show programmes and show props, amongst other things representing the Old Vic’s past and present. Equals are providing project management on the project, designed by Haworth Tompkins.
