In 2012 he launched Jamie Lloyd Productions with The Ambassador Theatre Group.

The auditorium was reconfigured to accommodate the season, including raising the stage by over two metres. The first season featured three productions: The Pride (which also went on a limited UK tour), The Hothouse starring Simon Russell Beale and John Simm, and Macbeth starring James McAvoy, which received an Olivier nomination for Best Revival. A second season was announced in March 2014, which will open in July 2014 with Richard III starring Martin Freeman.
