Darlington Civic Theatre is set to reopen in autumn 2017 as the Darlington Hippodrome after a £13m refurbishment by contractor Willmott Dixon.
Darlington Borough Council appointed Willmott Dixon under Scape’s major works framework to overhaul the Grade II listed Edwardian theatre
Improvements include more seating capacity, better backstage facilities, a new restaurant area and a grander entrance. The project also includes transforming a neighbouring former fire station into a children’s theatre, called The Hullaballoon.
