Komedia Bath

Komedia Bath

This project transforms the Beau Nash Picture House into the new Bath home of Komedia – one of the UK’s leading arts and entertainment organisations. The neoclassical 1920s auditorium of the Grade II listed cinema is sympathetically restored to provide a 650-capacity music, comedy and cabaret venue. Unsatisfactory 1970s insertions are removed and replaced with new, respectfully-considered accommodation, in line with the operational requirements.

Winner of 2010, 2012, 2013, 2015 and 2016 Chortle Awards for Best Comedy Venue in the West & Wales
