We decided to give ourselves a bit of a face lift ahead of our move to the Eternity Playhouse and are thrilled with the results. We've been working with the fantastic team at Sponge Agency who have helped us freshen up ahead of our first curtain call.

The 'D' icon in our new company logo represents many aspects of our new home. The Eternity Playhouse has a D-shaped thrust stage and the continental seating curves around the stage for a closer and more intimate theatre experience.

It was important that we also honoured the buildings past and our new logo has been inspired by the many heritage features of the former Baptist Tabernacle including the curved ornate wood panelled ceiling, arched stained glass windows and entrance, and dome ceiling above the original Baptismal Font.

We've chosen to incorporate the colours of the original surfaces and textures of the Tabernacle building. The spearmint and ochre featured on our new website reflects the original paint finish and sandstone found throughout the building, and you'll see this colour scheme incorporated into the finished building design by architects Tonkin Zulaikha Greer.
