The Apollo Theatre

Shaftesbury Avenue, one of the most famous roads in London’s Theatreland is the location of The Apollo Theatre, which has presented some of the world’s finest playhouse theatre.

During the 1970s and 1980s the theatre hosted many comedy performances including Middle Aged Spread (1980) with Richard Briers and Paul Eddington.

Other further notable plays and performances were John Mills in Rattigan’s Separate Tables (1976), Albert Finney in Orphans (1986), Zoe Wanamaker in the National Theatre’s Mrs Klein (1989), Vanessa Redgrave in A Mad house in Goa (1989), Peter O’Toole in Jeffrey Bernard is Unwell (1990), Peter Bowles in In Praise of Love (1995) Penelope Keith in Star Quality (2001), Felicity Kendal and Frances De La Tour in Fallen Angels (2000), Warren Mitchell in The Price (2003) and Jonathan Pryce in The Goat or Who is Sylvia? (2004).

Tech Ent Services were invited to carry out the inspection and testing of this prestigious venue, prior to the director of Tech Ent Services relocating overseas for several years.

The venue is a smaller West End playhouse and has around 30 distribution boards, located both front of house and back stage. These are broken up into primary power and secondary lighting.

Tech Ent Services carried out the inspection and testing to each distribution board as found, along with secondary lighting and all sub mains to two number 315A service heads.
