The cafe, as with the theatre, was restored in accordance with the original 1930’s design. njo provided the linear LED lighting to illuminate the art deco coving around the central ceiling boxes. Although 90% of the time they are kept on a warm white they can also be set to any RGB combination for functions and parties.

The pit rail runs from left to right across the front of the stage forming a low barrier behind the organ player and the orchestra. It can be synchronised in with the rest of the lighting or run independently and provides a very effective feature at low level within the auditorium.
