We opened our doors in 2004 and we are really proud to have grown into the leading theatre, acoustic and digital design consultancy. Our clients, our people, our collaborative approach and our commitment to do great work have made this possible.

We love what we do.

We’ve come a long way since our first project with London’s Siobhan Davies Dance Centre. From a troupe of just four to a six-studio collective of more than seventy, we’re just getting started.

We believe the best work comes from a culture of collaboration. We bring talented people together, build long-term relationships and share ideas, so we can create the best possible spaces for you.

Corporate Social Responsibility

Outreach. Sponsorship. Volunteering.

We contribute a portion of our time, skills and profit to support causes, companies and organisations in all areas of the theatre industry that share our vision to make theatre - and, by extension, the wider world - a better place. See how The Blue Team can help you.


We’re a collective of designers, strategists, musicians, acousticians, developers, creatives and technologists. We all share a love of performance, a belief the show must go on, and a desire to do great work.
