Restoration of the proscenium arch

Restoration of the proscenium arch

Alexandra Palace's Victorian theatre opened in 1875 but closed, after a chequered few decades, in the 1930s. Restoration will keep a light touch, preserving the evocative Victorian interior. HOLT has given a grant towards the statues of Thalia and Melpomene either side of the proscenium, and the restoration of the proscenium itself.
