Foyer Redevelopment Plans

In order to continue providing the very best experience for customers and to ensure sustainability in the future we are planning to significantly redevelop the Foyer space this summer. The improved space will enable us to showcase more local talent and develop a whole new strand of events. The aim is to create a venue in its own right, a place to come for a relaxing drink whether you are going to see an event in the auditorium or not.

To transform this space we will:

  • relocate the staircase to open up the whole area
  • re-site the Coffee Bar/Bar and the Box Office to make them more user-friendly for customers and volunteers
  • increase the number and comfort of the seats
  • re-design the lighting to create different moods for daytime and evening
  • create space for small scale performances, such as music, drama, poetry and comedy nights
