Event description

Description

We’re delighted to invite PLASA members to join us on a backstage tour of the Hull New Theatre following its £16m refurbishment. The theatre is set to reopen on 16th September after a significant upgrade so we're really grateful to the theatre staff for accomodating us at this hugely busy time.

Hull has more than lived up to its title as City of Culture 2017 and this beautiful, revitalised theatre is a firm indicator that the celebrations won't be over when the year ends.

Hull New Theatre was opened in 1939 and after years of renovations, the most recent in 1995, has finally undergone a series of major improvements. These include increasing the overall stage size and audience capacity by 200 seats, and substantial changes to the lighting, audio and environmental systems of the building.

Mark Lovell of theatre consultancy, Charcoal Blue, will kindly be supporting the technical staff with this tour.

Here’s the agenda for the day:

10.30am - coffee and welcome

11am - overview of the refurbishment

11.15am - backstage tour

1pm - buffet lunch and networking

2pm - panel discussion with Q&A

3pm - finish with tea and cake

Tickets cost £25.00 (plus VAT) per person attending to cover refreshments and lunch.
