tiata fahodzi announces its new home in the iconic Watford Colosseum
We are very excited to announce our return to Watford, with our new home in the Grade II listed Watford Colosseum.
Located in the heart of the town’s Town Hall Quarter, we will be delivering projects and working with local people from this exciting new hub for arts and culture in Watford.
Chinonyerem Odimba said “Securing this new home for tiata fahodzi in the iconic Watford Colosseum is a real moment of joy for us. Watford has a special place in the company's history, and we’re excited about the many plans we’re making for future projects in Watford and nearby. We are grateful to Watford Borough Council and in particular CEO Donna Nolan and Mayor Peter Taylor for all their generosity in making this happen, and the continued support for tiata fahodzi as we celebrate our 25th Birthday.”
Peter Taylor, Elected Mayor of Watford (Lib Dem) said “I am delighted that tiata fahodzi will be based at the Colosseum, working even more closely with Watford Council. We all know that theatre companies have had a difficult couple of years. It is so important that we support this sector in the years ahead and I am really pleased that this successful and growing company will be based in the heart of our town centre.”
The move comes as Chinonyerem goes into rehearsal for the remount of Black Love for which she recently won the award for Best Musical Theatre Bookwriting at Writers’ Guild Awards 2022.
