Located in Guildford, Surrey, Yvonne Arnaud Theatre hosts a variety of theatrical performances, as well as running youth and participation initiatives and offering food and drink options aplenty for visitors. Un.titled designed the theatre’s original website, but it was felt that an upgrade to the site would help bring the theatre into the 21st century.
The website delivers a new experience for visitors and aims to broaden the reach of the theatre, with an emphasis on opening it up to younger audiences.
We worked collaboratively with Feast Creative, who were refreshing Yvonne Arnaud’s brand, to produce the new design of the site. Feast Creative produced much the outline design and we made sure to incorporate our UX and accessibility standards.
The new site is built on Drupal and integrates with SeatGeek’s ticketing platform SRO4 using their API to pull in all event and performance data into the CMS.
“The new website is an opening gambit towards reclaiming the avant-garde, cutting edge reputation that the theatre enjoyed in its heyday,” said Nick Santos-Pedro, project manager at Un.titled. “With a focus on exciting theatre work and youth participation, the Yvonne Arnaud team identified digital as being a key first step towards their goal of reclaiming that high water mark and the website is obviously central to this. The new interface will go a long way in helping the theatre execute its digital strategy while serving as a foundation for future successes.”
