The Nuffield Theatre has been re-shaped – by removing side walls and ceilings – to improve acoustics, and three new lighting galleries have been installed to provide access to the main lighting systems. Two galleries run at roof level above the seating; the third and largest is above the stage and this is where the Cablenet virtual floor® has been installed.
This tension wire grid takes the form of a rectangle, tapered along the short sides, has an overall size of 10 x 5 metres and is woven with 3mm diameter galvanised wire rope.
