Kingsmead School Theatre
Year: 2007 Budget: £440,000
This project involved the conversion of a 1960s school hall into a purpose-built theatre. The school received specialist status for the performing and visual arts and the new theatre provides much needed performance facilities. We designed a rectangular open-stage space with fixed seating for 300 people.
Technical installations provide a lighting and sound infrastructure, which can be added to at a later date.
It’s envisaged that the theatre will be used by local community groups as well as the school and it has been designed to qualify for a public entertainments licence.
