Livingston House Construction is delighted to announce that we will be working as a sub-contractor to Tolent on the redevelopment of the People’s Theatre in Jesmond. This prestigious project is the start of a significant planned refurbishment of the theatre. Phase one of the work will see the addition of a new foyer bar, gallery and box office, as well as making the space more accessible throughout for wheelchair users.
The People’s Theatre is the premier amateur theatre company in the North of England and one of the largest and oldest established in the country. It hosted its first performance in July of 1911 and to this day continues to stage up to 12 productions a year. The redevelopment will allow the People’s Theatre to be able to offer people from all walks of life the experience of participating in any aspect of theatre: from costume design to publicity, or just to sit in the audience and enjoy the show!
