The work to build the new lift shaft has reached the half way stage. The structure has now reached the first floor level and a breakthrough in the wall between the lift shaft and the theatre auditorium has been made. When you come to see Sweat you will notice temporary panelling stage left which closes off the opening. The roofing work will follow very soon and then the finishing work on the lobbies can start. The lift company will be putting the manufacture of the lift in hand as soon as we give the final go ahead.
Although Nicola Stanhope has raised some funds through Trusts and Charities, there is still some money needed to get the mechanism in place. If you feel you can donate even a two figure sum, please ring the office who can take payments so please help to make the final push. Having a working lift will make such a difference to so many of our audience.
