Sadlers Wells Theatre
The refurbished Sadler’s Wells Theatre (SWT) is designed to attract international dance companies, create an arts training centre and provide community and education facilities.
The event space features a 1,560 seat auditorium with a 15m x 15m stage and 80 seat orchestra pit. The auditorium is lined with metal gauze panels that take dramatically transforming light and image projection, uniting audience and performers. There are three foyer galleries with bars, plus rehearsal and teaching spaces.
Built on a site with a long history of theatre buildings, the new one fronts the main thoroughfare, as its predecessor did. Behind is the refurbished Lilian Bayliss Theatre, now the focus for the new Community & Education Centre.
Appointed for the lighting design services, the lighting scheme is the largest and most sophisticated installation of GDS Arc LED lamps in the world.
It is anticipated that the capital costs associated with the introduction of LED based lighting system in the auditorium, front of house and external areas will pay back in 3-4 years.
