The Riverside Theatre was commissioned as a major project by the New University of Ulster (now Ulster University) in the 1970s, at the height of The Troubles, a great time in Northern Ireland’s history. There were no other theatres open and running outside of Belfast city centre at the time, however it was a particularly good moment for the establishment of new theatres and artistic facilities across the river in England and Scotland. The Theatre earned the coveted Architect’s Award for one of the greatest public architectural elements in the UK in 1977 just a few months after it opened. In the same year, as part of her official visit to the New University of Ulster in Coleraine, HM The Queen declared the Theatre open in person.
