Congleton Edge, Staffordshire Moorlands
The Daneside Theatre in Congleton is one of the towns key community spaces and is used to host countless rehearsals and performances throughout the year for many different local acting and dance groups of varying ages.
Arkhi are delighted to be collaborating with the Daneside Trust to develop a proposal for the extension and renovation of the theatre, which will both safeguard its future and finally resolve the usage and flow issues that have been identified by the theatre staff and users, to create a much-improved contemporary and better functioning space.
The theatre currently has an inadequately sized lobby and bar area which causes congestion and confusion for arriving patrons/ The proposal aims to resolve this and address the issues as the theatre looks to future proof the building, and accommodate the expanding programme of different events which they now provide (such as their popular film nights).
