In November 2020, Jacksons Lane Theatre, a creative and cultural hub in north London for 40 years, commenced a major redevelopment of their Grade II-listed building. The building is home to a 166 capacity theatre, large-scale dance and rehearsal studios, a cafe-bar and several multifunctional areas.

Arcadia Solutions installed the sound systems and intercoms in Jacksons Lane’s newly refurbished theatre and arts centre building in 2022.

The choice of equipment was high spec, installed expertly and discreetly and at the budget we presented to them. Our front of house area benefitted from two zones for ambience and our studios fully equipped with Bluetooth systems for ease of use and exceptional power. Nothing was too much trouble, any queries or alterations we needed were dealt with immediately on site, and Gavin and his team were communicative, friendly and worked around our building schedule which was changing weekly. We are delighted with the results and highly recommend Arcadia Solutions for any building or venue..

Theatre Requirements

The Theatre required audio and communications solutions to a range of areas, including; Reception, the Café, the Theatre Foyer and 5 Dance Studios.
Gavin Miller, Kazbar Systems Director and Phil Darke, Systems Architect, met with the Jacksons Lane Theatre Team to discuss their requirements, working closely with the Technical Team and Engineers to design a system that provides performers with outstanding vocal intelligibility, stunning full range music playback and ease of use.
