Yesterday morning, the Mayor of Surrey Heath, Cllr Sarah Jane Croke officially cut the ribbon to unveil the newly finished exterior building works which have just been completed at Camberley Theatre.
Work to replace and refurbish the Theatre frontage began on Monday 9th August. These essential works saw the removal of the old tiles (in place since the 1960s) and canopy (circa 1995) and replaced them with a modern scheme including a stylish, smooth render, new canopy, lighting and signage.
The theatre was able to remain open for shows during the works, including sold out performances from Russell Brand, Michael McIntyre (which sold out in two minutes), Francis Rossi and Gyles Brandreth
Theatre manager Andy Edmeads says, ‘I’m absolutely delighted to have the works complete and have the Theatre fully reopened. The refurbishment has not only improved the aesthetic of the frontage but also modernised and made safe an old part of the venue that needed some repair and TLC.
I hope our audiences will notice these improvements when they visit and that it adds to their experience at Camberley Theatre.
The Mayor of Surrey Heath, Cllr Sarah Jane Croke had this to add ‘Amazing to go along and cut the ribbon yesterday to officially open the new look for Camberley Theatre. The outside looks fabulous and really brings the theatre into modern day. Right in time for Panto season, which starts on Friday 10th December ‘Jack & The Beanstalk’ so get your tickets booked for this fun packed family pantomime.’
‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ is brought to you by the team and talent behind ‘Robin Hood’ which was nominated for three GB Pantomime Awards.
