Stevensons are delighted to announce that they have been chosen to help The Really Useful Theatre Company fulfil their ambition of restoring London’s oldest Theatre to its full splendour.
Stevensons have been awarded sole contract status to deliver a major specialist plasterwork restoration package, which is part of the theatre’s £45 million budget for a comprehensive renovation. Stevensons will be involved in the restoration and retention of the theatre’s original Georgian and Neo Classical architectural features.
