The seats at the Devonport Playhouse are over 60 years old, dating back to when the building first reopened as a church after the war. It has been on the agenda for the seats to be reupholstered, but the busy schedule of the Playhouse always put a stop to work being carried out on them.
When the Development was announced, this project was one of our top priorities.
We are going to remove all 316 seats at the Playhouse and pass them to a local company who have an extensive portfolio of projects.
This project is costing over £100 a seat, therefore it is an overall cost of over £30,000.
Both the back rest and the bottom will be replaced with new padding.
With 60 years of use, there are clear signs of wear and tear. So new fabric is a must.
The wood and metal on the seats will be refreshed to give the whole seat a major uplift
First seat is back!
The first of over 300 seats is back and what a difference! The look is much improved and most importantly so is the comfort!
We are looking forward to all of them being back at the Playhouse ready for the opening of Shrek.
Now you have seen the end product, can you help us fund the project?
This part of the project is costing over £30k
