Performing Arts Projects

Michael French Associates were appointed as Quantity Surveyors for the Tricycle Theatre, which opened in a converted dance hall in Kilburn High Road in 1980. Its unusual scaffolding and auditorium, based on a Georgian courtyard structure, seated 200 people.

During the seven years before it was almost totally destroyed by fire, it established a unique reputation. Michael French Associates were recently re-appointed for the re-building programme and front-of-house alterations.
