HULL NEW THEATRE

PRESTIGIOUS PROJECT FOR
THE CITY OF CULTURE

Exterior signage for newly refurbished theatre

Hull New Theatre is one of the UK’s premier touring venues for musicals, opera, ballet, drama, children’s shows and the annual Christmas panto.

As part of Hull’s year as UK City of Culture, the theatre underwent a major £16m refurbishment completed by Sewell Group, reopening with a special performance by The Royal Ballet.

We were tasked with manufacturing and installing exterior signage to the newly added fly tower – which is where scenery, props and sometimes even actors are ‘flown’ in from for the stage.

The signage provides the tower with a bold identity and gives a stylish face to this major venue. Comprised of powder coated railed aluminium with flat cut aluminium powder coated letters and crowns to face, we had to overcome several installation related obstacles.

This meant using specialist access equipment and liaising directly with building company Kingspan to ensure the specialist fixings used kept all warranties with the client. It was a great honour to install the signage on such a major city landmark, especially during the year of culture.
