May Crane Lifts Outside the Theatre

Dates have been agreed with Camden for the final two crane lifts that are needed for our Front of House refurbishment project.

Lift 1: Monday 6th May 2019. 11:59pm – 5:00am on Tuesday 7th May.
Due to matters outside of our control we have no option but to work within the permitted period. We will be lifting two 20metre roof trusses into place which requires a large space with exceptional road closure. Aside from the crane, the delivery and positioning of the trusses on the roof will be demanding work. We are confident that our contractors will do everything to minimise disruption, limiting noisy work as best as possible.

Lift 2: Sunday 12th May 2019. 8:00am – 6:00pm
Smaller items will be lifted to the Theatre’s roof which means less space will be required on the road. They will still be complicated in their nature and again carried out to minimise disruption, limiting noisy work as best as possible.
As always, contact us if you have concerns, but please understand that the Theatre has to work within schedules defined by others and is unable to alter the allocated dates/times. We will continue to do all that is possible to keep disturbance to a minimum.
