Building undergoing restoration

The original 1930s Royal Hall and Edwardian Spa Theatre have undergone a major refurbishment programme.  Much of the original building fabric has been renewed, along with replacement and upgrading of all of the building services equipment. 

The restored flat-floored stalls and the tiered balcony of the Royal Hall provide a flexible auditorium for trade shows, conferencing and a wide variety of stage presentations with a standing capacity up to 3500.

The rear stage, 11 metres wide and 5 metres deep, is provided with five power drill operated lighting/scenery bars, front curtain, stage masking, and separate curtaining to introduce or screen off the magnificent view to the sea front.  The main stage is 16 metres wide and 3 metres deep.  There is a trussing system over the stage and auditorium.  Audio-visual  equipment was entirely renewed.

 The restored, raked seated stalls and tiered balcony in the Edwardian Spa Theatre provide a traditional proscenium arch auditorium for music, dance, drama and conference presentation with a capacity of 675 seats.

A quantity of rostra can extend the stage front forward and within the auditorium floor a shallow orchestra pit is available for up to 12 players.  The stage at the proscenium is 9.3 metres wide and 11.7 metres deep.  25 power-flying sets for lighting and scenery were installed above the stage together with two high side lighting bridges and rear/ balcony front lighting positions in the auditorium.
