18 December 2018

Finishing touches have been made to around 1,650 new seats for the Congress Theatre which is in the final stages of a major two-year refurbishment.


New seats ready for refurbished Congress Theatre

The Grade II listed theatre will re-open in spectacular style this spring with a concert by London Philharmonic Orchestra on 24 March.

Built in 1963, the theatre has been closed since January 2017 for extensive work to be carried out. As well as the new seats, when the new look theatre opens it will have a new state-of-the-art lighting bridge, new heating and air conditioning systems and new toilets.

The auditorium floor is being prepared for the seats to be put in place in the New Year. Elsewhere, ceilings are being installed along with lights in the front-of-house area, and new ladies’ toilet cubicles – an increased number - are being fitted on the ground floor.
