Towards a greener future

Here's some of the environmental initiatives we're introduced recently. 

Saying no to plastic

With over 90% of plastic currently not being recycled, it is more important than ever to reduce the use of single-use plastic. At Capital Theatres we have been introducing measures to reduce the amount of plastic we use at our theatres, some of which include switching to paper straws and creating water refill stations.

Do you like to take your drink into the auditorium? We will be ditching single-use plastic cups for a greener alternative, reusable plastic cups.

Small things go a long way

At Capital Theatres we are continuously exploring ways in which we can be greener. In recent years we have made small changes to the Festival Theatre to reduce our carbon footprint. For instance, we have installed sensor taps and hand driers in toilets, which is proven to reduce water and paper usage, respectively. Other measurements include using as many local suppliers as possible, from food & drink providers to printing companies.  

Towards a greener future

With the redevelopment of the King’s Theatre, we are working closely with architects Bennetts Associates to ensure the venue is as environmentally friendly as possible. Some of the improvements that will be made to the venue include, but are not limited to, improving insulation, installing LED lightning on all auditorium areas and installing new water-save systems on toilet flushes.

If you have any ideas on ways in which we can continue to improve our venues, we’d love to hear them! You can send them to us in our Contact Us form.
