Thankfully in this case both iterations load the site main page.
In the case of the subdomain blogs on the other hand, if I enter the domain name with "WWW" as in the case of http://www.theatrefutures.org.uk/research I get redirected to the TLD http://theatrefutures.org.uk/
What I want to achieve is a scenario whereby all domains, TLD or subdomains, using either WWW or not, point to their relevant pages.
I'm sorry for the convoluted explanation. I hope it makes sense. I'd be really grateful for some help in resolving this.
Many thanks for your time and patience.
