In 2017, Hull was ‘UK City of Culture’.  In that same year Hull New Theatre

re-opened after a £16 million refurbishment.

Originally built in 1939 the theatre has undergone several upgrades, but nothing to equal this one. Back-stage areas have been completely rebuilt resulting in a larger stage, and fly tower, with completely new technical systems.Front of house areas have been brought up to date, including increasing the seating capacity by approximately 200. At the meeting we will learn something of the theatre’s history, and the theatre consultants, Charcoalblue, will speak about the technical goals and solutions.  We will also have the opportunity for tours of the theatre’s technical areas.
