The need for people to get together and enjoy live entertainment exists in every culture. No city, town or college is complete without its places of assembly. The form that these buildings takes varies enormously, but they all have certain principles in common, whatever their scale and regardless of whether they are new buildings or conversions or refurbishment of old premises. Drawing on a wealth of expertise, this illustrated book, produced in conjunction with the Association of British Theatre Technicians, examines in detail each function and requirement of a theatre building and gives technical guidance on achieving the best results.
