apollo ceiling

You remember the dreadful tragedy of the ceiling collapsing during a performance at the Apollo theatre? Well now it's back open for business with a whole new roof.

The new theme is moon lit forest and the ceiling features night sky and tree tops to that effect.

70 people were treated for injuries after the ceiling collapsed in the Grade II listed venue and as a result calls have been made for all theatres to make sure all their ceiling checks are up to date. Many London theatres have suspended plaster ceilings and although these do last well, they do need maintenance and checks regularly.

Let The Right One In will be the first play to be performed under the new ceiling.
