Built in 1928, the Southampton Mayflower Theatre is a Grade II listed building with a prominent central location and seating capacity of 2300, making it the largest theatre in the South of England. Anolis products were recommended for the architectural installation to the theatre’s Chief LX Neil Kingston and their Head of Technical Operations, Rachel Fox, by several people, including those running the O2 Guildhall, another leading Southampton live performance venue – which is also externally lit with Anolis – as well as by contacts at cruise company Carnival UK, which is headquartered in the city.
With these references, Neil was confident that Anolis would withstand the environment… He and Rachel further consulted with Simon Gooding from Anolis UK and Keith Elms from LTP and collectively they made the decision to go with Anolis, choosing fixtures from two popular Anolis RGBW ranges of luminaires to ensure that the landmark venue received the right lighting treatment!
