The Bob King Room
In late 2016, we began a project to rebuild the Greenroom.
In 1998 the old wooden theatre (but not the greenroom) was replaced with a new purpose built theatre costing £1.3 million financed by the National Lottery and private donations. The new theatre was designed to allow wheelchair access to virtually all areas of the superbly equipped building theatre with a raked auditorium, fly tower, revolving stage and two trap doors. This enables people with restricted mobility to play a role both on and off stage alongside their able bodied colleagues.
The new building houses the lounge, which is a multi-purpose room used for catering, auditions and extra rehearsal space as well as the bar for theatre audiences to enjoy. Additionally there is a kitchen and storage spaces. The new building will become an integral part of the main theatre. Double doors into the new multi-purpose room will allow easier access for wheelchair users.
Modern heating and insulation will make the room comfortable and more eco-friendly. The planned kitchen layout is practical and there will be useful storage space as well as a mezzanine floor for additional storage.

Our fundraising appeal
The new building is now an integral part of the main theatre. Double doors into the new multi-purpose room will allow easier access for audiences, including wheelchair users.
Plans include modern heating and insulation, making the room comfortable and more eco-friendly. The kitchen and servery facility will be practical with useful storage space, as well as a mezzanine floor for additional storage.
The cost of the project is estimate to be around £350,000. The good news is, we already have funds raised to around £250,000 from members donations and bequests!
