Thift Deluxe, is this a brutalist building you're aware of? I thought you would be interested in seeing it, so when we went recently, I took my camera specially and took some pictures.
Chichester Festival Theatre, located in West Sussex, England, was designed by Philip Powell and Hidalgo Moya, and opened by its founder Leslie Evershed-Martin in 1962.
Chichester Festival Theatre is one of very few 20th Century buildings to be Grade II* listed. When it opened in 1962, it caused a stir with its strong Brutalist design. After fifty years of use, the building required thorough modernisation. This project restored much of the original design, removing all previous extensions and remodelling the foyer and auditorium, as well as adding a new steel extension.
I have seen shows in here, first The Rocky Horror Show and then The Master and Margarita, which was quite the experience before the show! I had gone with a friend of Andy as she had a spare ticket. Amongst the pre show chit chat, I was asked if I go to the theatre often. I was vague in answering as I had been to the theatre, but to pantomimes and most frequently, The Rocky Horror Show and I suspected that those things weren't as high brow as the people asking would have liked!
This sits opposite and in front of the smaller Minerva Theatre.
