The Earl of Wessex, the University’s Chancellor, was joined by 200 guests at the opening ceremony, a special showcase evening of music, dance and debate.

The state-of-the-art four-storey building, The Edge, provides students, staff, and the wider community with a unique hub of culture and innovation.

It offers a 220-seat theatre, performance studio, rehearsal studios, three galleries and a contemporary café. It is also home to the School of Management’s executive education training suite - offering an extended programme of short courses, master classes, speaker events and seminars.

University of Bath Vice-Chancellor, Professor Dame Glynis Breakwell, said: “Bringing the creative arts and the study of management together under one roof is a new departure for Bath and is unique amongst UK universities, arts organisations and business schools.

“Our aim is that this will foster a culture of creativity and innovation, add greater depth to our management programmes, and promote leadership development and innovative business practice in the arts.

“The Edge provides a dynamic environment for creative minds and a wonderful enhancement to our facilities here at Bath University.'
