New Wimbeldon Theatre has always been a welcoming venue and the management team are always looking to enhance the patron experience.
On and off since August 2016 the in house team have been meticulously attending to the plasterwork and paint in the main foyer, installing new directional signage and carrying out refurbishment works to the foyer bar. The foyer bar is the first area all patrons to the venue see and in May the works will be completed with a total rebuild of the main bar serving area. The bar will be open post-show for patrons to continue their evening’s entertainment.
The Studio Theatre, accessed by a small door off The Broadway is undergoing a complete refurbishment. New seating, carpets, paintwork, signage and a digital cinema with Dolby surround sound will present live broadcast theatre experiences from around the world, and be available for private hire experiences. The studio theatre bar will be overhauled in the summer to incorporate a new, intimate gallery space.
New Wimbledon Theatre currently hosts a Lunchtime Choir, and runs topical workshops throughout the year including the upcoming Shakespeare in a Day: Macbeth and Matthew Bourne’s The Red Shoe Workshop during the Easter holidays.
