 ABTT presents a visit to

“Milton Court, Guildhall School of Music & Drama”

Friday 4th April 2014

Venue: 1 Milton Street, London, EC2Y 9BH

Time: Meeting in Milton Court Stage Door at 13:30


RSVP to the office by Wednesday 2nd April.

The Guildhall School has now completed a major building project to expand its facilities. In the Milton Court building, based across the street from the current Silk Street building, the new facilities, opened in September 2013, provide the School with state-of-the-art performance and teaching spaces including:

•    a 608-seat Concert Hall

•    a 223-seat  proscenium arch Theatre

•    a multi- format Studio Theatre

•    three major rehearsal spaces

  • spacious wardrobe, laundry, wig and dyeing rooms.
  • teaching and meeting rooms
  • a television studio

The design challenge for the auditoria was ‘excellent acoustics and isolation’ between each performance space.

Technically the concert hall features world class acoustics and a fully adjustable stage on multiple serapid lifts, the theatre has 48 axes of state of the art power flying and a large fully equipped control room, and the studio theatre has a full width unobstructed tension wire grid.

Representatives from the Architects (RHWL Arts Team) and Theatre Consultants (Theatre Projects) and Acousticians (Arup) will be on hand to talk to members. Steve Huttly, Head of Theatre Technology, and his staff will be on hand to show members around.
