Blackpool Proscenium Arch – Case Study

The Hayles and Howe team have worked with the Town Council of Blackpool on numerous venues, one of which The Blackpool Tower Ballroom – now famous due to the Strictly Come Dancing television show. Due to deterioration of the timber and canvas over time, our team carried out extensive repairs within the void behind the plasterwork using traditional techniques and materials.

Royal Opera House – Case Study

A part revamp of the Royal Opera House’ auditorium saw our team suspended on a ‘flying carpet’ platform to repair and redecorate the fibrous ceiling plaster work. The project took two weeks and saw the team repair the balcony fronts and survey the frieze above the stage.
