Recently supplied emergency lighting will be on duty for upcoming opening nights at the Lyric Theatre, Belfast and the Theatre Royal, Newcastle in the next few months as rebuilding works are completed in Belfast and refurbishment concluded at Newcastle.

Theatre work has become a speciality for Philip Payne who have made special product variations at many London theatres including The Royal Opera House, The Royal court Theatre, The National, Sadler’s Wells, LSO-St Luke’s and the Roundhouse.

The West End has been particularly busy in recent times where Payne have collaborated with several architectural teams to complete works at The Queens, Wyndham, Prince of Wales, Strand (Novello) and Prince Edward Theatres.

Less iconic and provincial work has also benefited from the aesthetic empathy that Philip Payne provide when offering product for theatre and specifically auditoria use as demonstrated at The Hull Truck Theatre, Leicester Performing Arts, The Unicorn Children’s Theatre, The Gaiety Theatre (IOM), Theatre Royal Norwich, The Young Vic, The Hackney Empire plus Birmingham’s Hippodrome and Town Hall venues.
