The Changing Face of The Milton Rooms

Published: Updated:

The Milton Rooms is moving at a fast pace into the 21st century thanks to a £500,000 refurbishment grant from Ryedale District Council.

Audiences and performers will find the lighting and audio systems upgraded to provide a thoroughly up-to-date high­tech experience and the main hall and bar have been redecorated and brightened up with more welcoming colours.

There are new toilets throughout the building and a lift to transport users to the disabled toilet in the basement with a baby changing room.

Ryedale Youth Theatre’s production of Matilda was the first to benefit from the exciting new lighting system.

The chairman of the Milton Rooms trustees, Ray King, said: “The theatre infrastructure is state of the art, ensuring that we will truly be put on the map as a community arts venue, a must-go-to destination for local residents and those living in Ryedale and beyond. Our thanks go to Ryedale council for the grant of £500,000 and our contractors.”

The contractors were John Wright, Disabled Lift Services, North Star Engineers and Richard Walton.
