Welcome to Eastgate Theatre and Arts Centre Peebles
BUILDING ON SUCCESS
This gallery shows just some of the work that took place during the development of the cafe foyer area and the auditorium during the summer of 2019.
The Eastgate café re-opened on Monday 12 August, the auditorium re-opening was delayed by four days until Thursday 12 September. Welcome to the next phase in the life of the Borders’ busiest theatre …
THE CAFE FOYER
In addition to the improvements to the auditorium the café/foyer area has been significantly improved by the repositioning of the main entrance and the creation of a “snug” area designed (with advice from Dementia Friends Scotland) to help the theatre continue to improve accessibility.
This phase of the Eastgate Development Project has delivered:
A new front entrance, with double automatic doors
A new snug area in the café with theatre seats
A completely new raked seating bank
Alterations to the walls on the side galleries to improve sight lines
Replacement of the gallery seating so that the seats are angled to the stage
Hand grabs in the aisle of the raked auditorium seating bank
Lighting on all of the auditorium stairs to improve safety
