South Downs National Park Authority has granted planning consent for the new Production Hub we have designed for Glyndebourne. The design places a double-height assembly workshop as the heart of the building. Workshops for those who make props, scenery and costumes are ranged around it, as well as a rehearsal room, practice rooms and a central tea-room.
"Our plan to build a new, state-of-the-art production hub will unite our making departments under one roof and give them world-class facilities in which to work."
Gus Christie, Executive Chairman, Glyndebourne Productions
In line with Glyndebourne's strong environmental credentials, the project will achieve an 'Excellent' BREEAM rating. Work is due to start on site after Christmas.
