Birmingham Rep multi-million pound revamp nears end

15 August 2013 Last updated at 14:17 BST

Just a few weeks remain until the Birmingham Repertory Theatre reopens after a multi-million pound revamp.

Work has involved linking the building to the new Library of Birmingham as part of a £188m project.

Jazz and hip-hop star Soweto Kinch will be performing in the new 300-seat auditorium after the venue reopens on 3 September.

The Rep executive director Stuart Rogers said one of the challenges is increasing income in the context of decreased public funding.
