The spectacular Grade II listed glorious Trafalgar Theatre is the result of a major multi-million-pound restoration project reinstating the theatre back to its original heritage 1930’s design, some of which has not been seen for over 90 years.
Within the new single 630 seat auditorium, the newly restored decoration and lighting is black with silver, bronze and gold metallic hints, reflective of the original interior’s colour palette. Using historical photographs as a reference, the auditorium carpet and seating fabric replicate the original design patterns, with greens, creams and yellows to contrast against the monochrome walls.
The Balcony front – that had been carefully stored away for a number of years when the theatre was two studio spaces – has been beautifully restored and refitted to spectacular effect, along with the grand ceiling and proscenium arch.
Elsewhere, the redesigned entrance foyer provides more spacious bars and a new Box Office with tiling and details inspired by the original 1930s foyer design.
