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.

 

Jacksons Lane’s new spaces in our redeveloped building have been transformed in terms of our audio facilities, thanks to Kazbar Systems. Discreet, aesthetically pleasing and dynamic bluetooth systems in every space to suit workshops, rehearsals, ambience, all our needs. They have been an absolute joy to work with.

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.

Sound System

Speakers and amplifiers from Bose and Audac were discretely installed in all Studios, some at height, giving an impressive sound experience through optimal dispersion, with mixers from Rane and Mackie providing control of all audio signals the performances require.
