Chipping Campden School
A new stand-alone Performing Arts building on the Chipping Campden School site is now complete, and gives the School a purpose built large Hall suitable for a range of music and drama productions, along with a separate fully equipped Drama Studio. The main theatre space seats over 300 on a seating system that can be fully retracted to expose a completely flat floor for many other uses.
The back wall of the Main Hall can be opened up so that a Dance Studio at the rear of the main stage area can become an extended depth stage for the Hall, or vice versa, enabling much larger productions such as musicals, large cast assembly space, full orchestra and chorus staging etc.
The Theatre is equipped with the latest stage lighting and audio systems and equipment, and a full-blown cinema projection system which allows live streaming of performances from major cultural institutions as well as new release commercial films.
It is intended that both spaces will have strong community use as well as a teaching facility for the School.
Theatretech were the theatre and acoustic consultants, and Acanthus Clews the architects.
Completed end of 2022.
