Royal Conservatoire of Scotland launches new £2million Creative Campus learning and teaching complex

The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (RCS) unveils a new purpose-built learning and teaching complex today (Wednesday, January 25) as part of its 170th anniversary celebrations.

The Creative Campus project, an investment of more than £2million, has introduced a contemporary two-level rehearsal facility, increasing practice room provision by 50%.

The exciting new addition provides students of Scotland’s national conservatoire with essential practical resources as they develop their potential. The project has created 27 acoustically separated rooms for individual practice and one-to-one teaching and two large ensemble rehearsal spaces. The facility will support performers of all ages and backgrounds, from undergraduate students and the young performers of the Junior Conservatoire to lifelong learners who study at the Royal Conservatoire at evenings and weekends.

Helping to officially open the complex are twins and trainee music teachers Hannah and Morgan Charleston from Larkhall, 18-year-old violinists who are in the first year of a BEd degree.

The launch of the Creative Campus comes at the start of the 170th anniversary year of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. A new tartan has been created to celebrate the occasion which is modelled by Scottish actor and Conservatoire graduate, Kevin Guthrie, who stars in this summer’s World War II movie, Dunkirk.

Established in 1847, the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland is one of the world’s most multi-disciplinary conservatoires, offering specialised teaching across dance, drama, music, production and screen. It is ranked sixth in the world for performing arts education and number one in Scotland for graduate employability, endorsing its status as a national and international centre of excellence for the performing arts.
