OUT WITH THE OLD IN WITH THE NEW

TIERED SEATING REFURBISHMENT

As part of the Princes Theatre’s on-going restoration

project we are pleased to announce that the theatre

has now been transformed with a £40,000 seating

refurbishment. Audience Systems installed seats

in the theatre’s tiered section more than 20 years

ago and returned to put in 332 new ones. We are so

delighted with the improvement and we are certain

you will be too. The new

seating is of a high

standard and identical

to that used in London’s

O2 Arena. The project

also involved the

installation of hand

rails.

BOX OFFICE &

PRINCES THEATRE WEB SITE

2017 was an exciting year for the Princes Theatre

with the introduction of our brand new box office

and website. By bringing this in-house we feel

we have been able to offer a faster and efficient

service to our customers by dealing with booking

enquiries first hand rather than going through a

third party. Over the past couple of months you may

have noticed that following a show you receive an

automated email requesting feedback. We feel that

obtaining customer feedback is vital to our business

as we want to ensure our customers not only

get value for money but have an enjoyable visit

and continue to return again and again. Please

take a minute to provide us with feedback. All

feedback is welcome.

ONGOING PROJECTS

One of the areas that will be looked at next will

be the public conveniences, starting with the

ladies which are in much need of a facelift. The

refurbishment allows for additional cubicles which

will certainly help with queues during our busy

shows. The Town Hall is a grade 2 listed building and

as soon as the plans have been approved work will

commence. We are also planning to reinvest money

into overhauling our sound system.

the biggest races around the world including, the Prix de l’Arc

de Triomphe four times (1995, 2001, 2002, 2015), the Dubai

Jimmy

Jones

Jimmy Jones is regarded as one of Britain’s most successful live comedians.

His act is legendary. He was the first stand up comic to release a video which went on to sell 75,000

copies. Many of today’s successful comedians cite Jimmy as their inspiration and out of pure

respect – they refer to him as the Guvnor!.

From the clubs in the South East, to the theatres around the UK and a residency in Las Vegas,

Jimmy has played them all to sell out crowds. However, TV stations would never air Jimmy, ruling

his act as too risqué.

In this his 58th year in show business, Jimmy published his autobiography and returns to the

Princes Theatre with a great show including his “true stories” supported by hilarious fellow

comedian and life-long friend, Mickey Pugh

There is only one Jimmy Jones, don’t miss it!!
