theatre refurbishment


Refurbishment at The Wimbledon Theatre, a Listed building with a Grade I interior, included reconstruction and re-tiering of the Upper Circle (Gallery) to improve the sightlines and a new lighting gallery at the front of the Upper Circle, situated below the audience sightlines. The new tiered floor accommodates seating for over 300 people and replaces the original 'cushions-on-concrete' seating format. Detailed consultations with English Heritage and with the local authority's Conservation and Safety Officer's were a significant part of the programme.
