Lyceum Theatre

Sheffield, UK

This beautiful Edwardian theatre was originally designed by theatre architect W.G.R. Sprague and has been hosting touring West End productions and operas since the 1990s. But urgent upgrade work was needed so the theatre can continue to meet its aims of providing high quality work, developing audiences, and meeting its cultural sustainability goals. The renovation included the redecoration and reorganization of public areas and crucial improvements to backstage areas, including the upgrade and enhancement of specialist theatre equipment. We helped to improve the auditorium equipment to improve efficiency, energy consumption, and lighting control functionality.
