We are pleased to announce the next phase in the ongoing improvement programme at the Chatsworth Centre.

Work on an extension to the existing building will begin on Dec 5th, and will hopefully be complete by Easter 2017.

Access to the theatre will be improved via a new enlarged foyer, which adjoins a spacious bar/refreshment area with full-height windows, which will overlook the soon-to-be developed landscaped frontage.  The building will also benefit from additional toilet facilities.

The development is being partly funded by Derbyshire County Council, for which we are most grateful. The work will ensure that the Duchess Theatre continues to offer an entertainment venue with facilities of the highest standards, both on and off stage.

I am sure you will understand that there will be a certain degree of disruption whilst the work takes place. We apologise in advance, and look forward to your cooperation during this time.
