Phase 1 Spring 2018: backstage

picture here


For many years the two dressing rooms behind the stage were used for pantomimes and amateur dramatics.  Since those activities fell out of favour the rooms have become effectively storage cupboards.


Problems with the dressing rooms:

Uninsulated and very difficult to heat in winter

Can only be accessed through the main hall

Users have to walk through the hall to reach the kitchen


Good things abut the stage and dressing room area:

Two light bright rooms for smaller groups

Masses of storage under the stage

A stage for musicians at ceilidhs and other parties

There’s a toilet


Our solutions to the problems:

A separate entrance from the car park

Add a little kitchen so users don’t have to disturb others in the big hall

Reduce the size of the stage – there’ll still be space for musicians
