The New Vic Pushes Ahead With A Refurbishment

The New Vic in Newcastle under Lyme was built by the community, for the community and despite the doors being shut, it pushes on with plans to refurbish its autororium.

This week the builders move in to replace all the seats and also add handrails to the aisle to aid visitors.

The full list of works includes:

  • Replacement of all 597 seats
  • Redevelopment of balcony seating
  • Replacement of aisle ends and lighting
  • Stage floor replacement
  • Redevelopment of front-of-house toilets

It’s been a challenging couple of weeks of Theatre but this offers a little glimpse of hope for the future of this 22 year old space.
