Theatre Royal Bath

The George Dance Facade of the Theatre Royal Bath, situated on Beaufort Square, is the only remaining wall saved after the fire  that destroyed the original Georgian building in 1862. The origin of the fire, which started at night when the theatre was empty, remains a mystery and the pink discolouration of the Bath stone caused by the flames can be seen around the window openings. Nimbus was asked to undertake a major restoration of the carvings that had decayed and become dangerous. Stephen Bushell, Richard Strachey, Geoffrey Preston, and my self all made a new lyre. I made a new head and haunch for the lion, Geoffrey made a new head and haunch for the unicorn and the chain. Richard made the crown and lion on the top of the arms. Stephen and I cast the aluminium tails and unicorns horn. Other repairs were carried out by the cast. We had the great pleasure during the course of this project of seeing Glenda Jackson every day as she was the star of a new play in production at the theater.
