Derby Arts and Theatre Association DATA
Plan to Reopen the Assembly Rooms

DATA representatives attended a meeting on the plans to repopen the Assembly Rooms at the Derby City Council building on 15th May 2019. This was at the invitation of the DCC who wished to update DATA on the architectural proposals and seek DATA input on them.

Representatives of the DCC project management as well as the lead and architect from the subcontractor attended and gave a detailed walkthrough of the architectural proposals. DATA was well represented, particularly thanks to attendance from a number of experienced stage managers drawn from our membership.

The meeting was again cordial and constructive. DATA representatives were able give a number of inputs from the perspective of staging productions in the Assembly Rooms. These were gratefully received but of course all confirmed plans will be subject to budgetary constraints and planning permission.
