Lights, Camera …. Action! The Royal Exchange Theatre. This week saw the launch of the newly refurbished Members Lounge at Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester. Litecraft couldn’t wait to pop along for a visit.
Right at the heart of Manchester, this award winning Royal Exchange Theatre spans five decades (probably the reason behind the face-lift). Furthermore, it is home to some great productions from classic writers such as William Shakespeare and Oscar Wilde.
Ruth Paterson, Development Manager of the Royal Exchange Theatre
Firstly, in late January we were approached by Ruth Paterson, Development Manager of the Theatre to help with the makeover. “… the original wooden panelled board room from when the theatre building started life as a Cotton Exchange is a lovely space, but in need of a refresh.” Ruth Paterson.
Certain areas of the lounge had started to feel dark and dated. For instance, whilst the original wood paneled walls where loved by many visitors, the room needed a lift. As a result, we were delighted to be involved in the makeover and become the official Lighting Supporter for the Members’ Lounge. Therefore, the new room was unveiled on 25th February 2013, coinciding with the first night performance of To Kill a Mockingbird.
With a little help from us the lounge has been given a new lease of life. As a result, 6 of our Global Pendants in Champagne where suspended along the main ceiling and the mezzanine. More so, our funky Hollywood Floor Lamps lit up the main wall and fire place. Furthermore, our state of the art LED Colour Changing strip light was chosen to up-light the wood panelling. In addition, our spotlight bars were also chosen for the entrance hall and stairwell. Our photographer went along with his camera and took some snaps.
Lights, Camera …. Action! We love the use of our LED Colour Changing strip light to up-light the wood panelling.
