The Old School
Here are some photos from the work we did to transform a former Primary School Hall into our new home.
The hall before we did anything:
During the painting:
Painting almost finished:
We put up a scaffold mezzanine (storage underneath, office on top) and adapted the gym bars which were left in the hall to use as the safety rail:
Painting & mezzanine structure finished:
The finished space!
A view from the other end, curtains in place to cover the storage and workshop areas:
Sven Hopla & co rehearsing in the space:
Matt Pang in the workshop area next to the mezzanine:
The space is in full use now, both for our own rehearsals and other companies. We’re planning on continuing to add things to the space over time; including mirrors along one wall and theatre blacks on all the walls so we can create a black box space if required.
Massive thanks to the following for helping out with painting, constructing and moving in, without their help we’d probably still be painting now, 3 months after moving in!
So, thanks; Catherine Boot, Truan Jay Mathias, Lucy Spielberg, Alan Conlon and Danny Chase.
