"The Theatre regeneration project reaches another milestone with the dismantling of the scaffolding "cage", which was erected for the work to repair and renovate the ceiling of the auditorium. The ceiling remains substantially "as found", maintaining the unique atmosphere of the Victorian theatre, but made safe and adapted to allow lighting and other technical equipment to rigged up.
The construction work now reaches the final stage of completion and fitting out, and the team at Alexandra Palace are now turning their attention to finalising the programme of events and performances for the opening later in the year."
Fantastic news - I remember when the imminent collapse of the ceiling was one of the main reasons put forward as to why the restoration of the theatre was not a practical possibility (in the nineties?)!
