Stage Electrics Win Contract for Fairfield Halls Redevelopment.

Stage Electrics have won a contract to supply production lighting and audio-visual solutions to Croydon’s historic Fairfield Halls as a part of the venue’s highly anticipated redevelopment.

Working with the Contractor, Vinci Construction Ltd, and the Theatre Consultant, Sound Space Vision, the Stage Electrics team will be starting on site this month. “Stage Electrics has a long-standing relationship with this venue” commented Richard Phare, Stage Electric’s Regional Commercial Manager “I was personally involved with Fairfield’s last technical refurbishment over 20 years ago. It’s fantastic that Stage Electrics can, again, play a part in this venue’s continuous development.”

The Stage Electrics team are completing works within the venue’s three main performance spaces; the 1800-seat Concert Hall, the 750-seat Ashcroft Theatre and the Arnhem Gallery – plus a new multi-function space for up to 450 people. “This is an ambitious project” continued Richard “Fairfield Halls will become home to a vibrant new cultural quarter once the works are finished. The client’s aim is to transform Fairfield into landmark destination for the arts in South London, something I feel is certainly achievable”.

First opened in 1962 as an arts and entertainment centre and consisting of a Theatre, Studio Space and Concert Hall this venue has been significant for professional music, plays, stand-up comedy and classical music in South London. The 1800-seat Concert Hall has been regularly used for BBC television, radio, and orchestral recordings.

In 2016 it was confirmed Fairfield Halls would close its doors for at least 2 years during the redevelopment orchestrated by Croydon Council. The renovation of this iconic venue comes as a part of Croydon Council’s plan for the regeneration of the Fairfield’s area, which will revitalise and reconnect this part of East Croydon with the rest of the town centre.

Over the last 50 years, Fairfield Halls has seen many famous acts perform including, Stevie Wonder, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, The Who, and Queen and two London orchestras.
