Hertford Theatre 

Client: East Herts District Council 
Architect: Bennetts Associates
Project: Transformation of Hertford Theatre including, refurbishment, extension and alterations

The Transformation

HBC is looking forward to leading the building compliance process on the refurbishment and extension to Hertford Theatre.

The centre is set to include: 

  • Three bespoke cinema screens allowing screenings of newly released films 
  • Increased seating in the auditorium with the introduction of a circle level 
  • A new studio auditorium seating 150 people
  • A relaxing and open public plaza-style foyer
  • Uncovering the 12th-century motte at the back of the theatre which people can reach directly from The Wash, via a new boardwalk, creating an exciting link between the theatre, Castle Grounds, and the castle 
  • An improved riverside café-bar for both theatre visitors and people enjoying the park 
  • Improved access to all areas of the building so that artists can better reach the stage, backstage, and the dressing rooms.

Just to stress the importance of leaving building sites safe, the importance of CDM and temporary support! This incident in Bushey over the bank holiday involved two buildings, the injured party was very fortunate. Pleased to be called upon #publicservice #construction @labcuk
