Thank you so much to Tracy Elliot and the Facilities Team at King’ Space! We have just had a fantastic week’s hire of the Vanbrugh Theatre. The technical, staging and dressing room facilities are second to none. In addition, the assistance with feeding for our Gang in the 1541 dining area was a huge bonus. I would also like to thank the facilities team for accommodating all our needs and requests so efficiently. THANK YOU KING’S!!
