Theatre is now fully equipped to deal with hot or cold weather!

Posted on 23/08/2018 by Helga Pearson

Thanks to recent engineering work, we are now able to offer audiences comfortable temperatures - whatever the weather!

Experts have recently been called into the Grade 1 listed building to recommission and update an air conditioning system that has been out of action for over a decade. It is now in full working order and able to effectively cool the auditorium as well as boost heat in colder weather snaps.

Clare Allen, Chief Executive of The Georgian Theatre Royal, said: “It has always been a challenge to maintain optimum temperatures in a building of this age but the recent extremes of weather has prompted us to divert funds and invest in this work.

“We are now confident that our audiences can still enjoy the incredible ambience of this wonderful 18th century building whilst benefitting from modern-day comforts,” she added.

Built in 1788, the Theatre currently has a capacity audience of around 200 although in Georgian times this number was nearer 400. There were also no toilets or bars, which are all now part of the Theatre-going experience.
