The "Grand Old Lady of Bath Street" was given a major exterior makeover to celebrate her 100th year as a top entertainment venue including new lighting, stone cleaning, the removal of old canopies and paving around the outside. The driving force behind the works was David Williams, the chief executive at the time.
Although a building of significant historical value and of listed status, it was decided that a lighting scheme that brought some of the theatrical to the outside should be devised. As you can see in the pictures, this beautiful building languished in the dark, with no presence at all but this was dramatically changed after the lighting installation.
The restrained use of select colours, principally fire orange, which complemented the red sandstone and the use of gobo projection, a technique normally reserved for inside a theatrical venue allowed us to draw out the character and purpose of the building, allowing the grand old lady to shine once again.
