The Repertory Theatre, renowned for its year round programme of theatrical events, was named Venue of the Year at the 2016 Birmingham Awards. The award was presented for its ability to host exhibitions, company events and functions. Stuart Rogers, executive director at The REP, said: “A big thank you to everyone who voted for us and a huge congratulation to the events team and everyone else at The REP who helped us to win this award.

It’s a great achievement.”
