When Cheltenham Ladies' College decided to extend their facilities to include a new auditorium, they decided to purchase a nearby grade II* listed villa, Bayshill House. Because of the historic nature of the building, the college's plans were referred to English Heritage who responded enthusiastically to the project. The auditorium is primarily intended for the spoken word, but can also present singing and musical performances. It is also designed with extra space in the technical gallery and control rooms so teaching can take place here.
