      Splendid. That's so grand. Nice colours too.

      The reds are brilliant and I like how the tint spills into the rose coloured ornate railing to link together the fancy seating and the balcony railing that holds the people back in the safe zone. It looks a bit early, perhaps you should check the ticket for the showtime.

      I love these old theatres and you have got this one so well.

      Wonderful opulence and an absolute orgy of red, gold and brocade. Your use of the 10mm is fully justified for this shot. The colours are just magnificent. Grand job.

      Glad to see you made it there in the end - and your Sigma is just a brilliant lens! :-)

      Thank you everyone!
      yes, it was part of the Heritage Open Day weekend. It was quite easy to snaek away from the guided tour for a bit and take these shots... didn't bring a tripod as they may not have liked it, but getting these shots was no problem. The theatre's capacity was incresead from 600 to 900 in the 1990's with some building work and a modern extension but they managed to keep the auditorium original. The building has now been listed Grade II, so it will hopefully be preserved in its current state. This may cause issues with bigger productions though, due toe the heavy and large sets they bring on tour.

      I grew up in this old theatre known then as the Hippodrome, if you look at my blog pages at www.rustythespian.spaces.live.com you will read about some of my happy days there,
      The last time I was there was as a guest of Peter Todd who was the Director when it became the Civic Theatre. (The Hinge & Brackett Shampaign Tour! when I was introduced I could not resist saying 'Hello Mother!) It still looks great!!! How the memories flood back such as "The Great Kardoma! He fills the stage with flags!!!" Thank you...........and yes it was me on the organ! I think I was Seven..........
