Floorboards that were part of the original stage at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre are to be incorporated into a new 112m theatre

Old stage boards, once trodden by stars such as Sir Laurence Oliver, have been relaid in the new Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-on-Avon.

The company has built a new theatre, with seating capacity for 1,000 people, using the original facade of the 1932 building.

Boards from the old theatre have been laid in a space between the auditorium and foyer in the new theatre.

The RSC has announced it has £5m left to raise for its £112m redevelopment.
