GDS FoH Fund

Thanks to a partnership with GDS, one theatre will be awarded up to £10,000 of front of house lighting.

GDS manufacture LED lighting equipment and controls for lighting foyers and bars as well as a range of back of house and stage management products.

The GDS FoH Fund will deliver a complete GDS solution package including:

  • Site visit and survey
  • Lighting design
  • 3D design rendering
  • LED Product manufacture
  • LED Product customisation (if applicable)
  • Prodigy Series lighting control system
  • Installation
  • Commissioning
  • Complete project management throughout

This will allow one theatre to benefit from a full upgrade to its front-of-house lights.

Theatres Trust will provide expertise to draw up a shortlist for what will certainly be a popular scheme as theatres look to improve their environmental sustainability by improving their audience’s experience and upgrading to front of house lighting to LED technology.

This fund has now closed and we are pleased to announce that The Old Rep theatre in Birmingham is the lucky recipient.
