Built in 1891, the Everyman Theatre is Grade II listed and the earliest surviving theatre by the prolific theatre architect, Frank Matcham. The front of house and backstage areas were rebuilt in the 1980s.
FWA restored the historic auditorium and modernised the front of house areas, that had been rebuilt in the 1980s. Working with historic theatre consultants Theatresearch, our work included repairing the original fibrous plasterwork and scagliola, and the restoration of the historic colour scheme and murals. Seats, carpets, wallpaper and drapes have been replaced with new designs based on Matcham interiors elsewhere, to recover the sumptuous character of the original interior, while improving audience comfort.
