Lose yourself to the experience


Theatre is a special meeting place that brings together the audience, performers and crew all in one place, each with their own unique perspective. The lights, the sounds, the emotion. All your senses are engaged in a heightened state. When everything is executed with precision, you lose yourself to the story and performance, immersed in a moment in time. You’re no longer sitting in the audience – you’re part of the drama, swept up with the characters. It’s a phenomenal experience. And behind it all you’ll find Hewshott's theatre consultants working harmoniously with our acoustics, AV, and IT practices.

As the industry’s leading global, independent consultancy, we can advise you on how best to use technology to amplify human experience and enhance operational efficiencies. While the cast and crew will get the accolades on the night, the performance would be nothing without the technical brilliance of well executed lighting and sound. But of course, these things don’t exist in isolation – the rigging, the comms, all the back-stage systems and moving parts must be meticulously planned so they can be flawlessly operated. One small technical glitch will jolt you into reality, so you need to execute with precision accuracy.

With in-depth working knowledge of the corporate, education, worship, theatre, performing arts and entertainment sectors, Hewshott’s theatres are extraordinarily capable of handling all the highly technical solutions that make the magic happen, working expertly to ensure consistency of experience across spaces.




As your independent theatre consultant, Hewshott acts as a trusted project partner, empowering you to make good decisions as we advise, investigate and anticipate, opening lines of communication between you and the installing contractor to elevate your project at every opportunity.
