2012: Georgian Auditorium Refurbed

In 2012, we completed the redevelopment of our historic Georgian auditorium, rehearsal spaces and back offices.

During the restoration work, graffiti by one of the original carpenters was found, along with a hidden doorway that led from a box to the backstage area.

Builders also discovered a huge upturned funnel in the ceiling that drew hot air out above a central chandelier to act as a basic air-conditioning system, while a tarred gutter was revealed to be a Thunder Run.
