ROOF REPAIRS AT COMPASS THEATRE From Monday 20 March 2017, there will be some vital work going on to repair the roof at Compass Theatre. Both the theatre and Ickenham Hall will be open for business as usual, however there will be fewer spaces in the car park. Please allow plenty of time to find alternative parking or come by public transport.

Technical Information (Winston Churchill Theatre)


Main Information

Out of service items
  • We are currently experiencing issues with our Techpro Can Power Supply, although this item is on-site we are currently advising that if you require communication from the lighting area to the stage you would be wise to bring your own PSU for the TechPro equipment.

LASERS: Please be aware we have realised that we have omitted on the Technical Requirements Form (Section F) that lasers and laser lighting do require us to obtain licensing permission. If your show will involve the use of lasers in any form please inform us a minimum of 6 weeks prior to your show, so that we can gain the correct permissions.

GUNS (firearms) on stage
As a venue we (Winston Churchill Theatre) need to know about the use of any type of gun (firearm) on stage (toy guns included), the only exception is wooden props. The main reason for this is to establish if we (Winston Churchill Theatre) need to gain permission for the use of the gun (firearm).

  • A gun (firearm) that is a plastic toy and is not to be used to fire anything (including the toy caps), we as the venue still need to be made aware of this, and make it clear on the technical return that it is a NON-FIRING toy; this will mean that we do not need specific permission to be granted.
  • If the gun is going to be used to fire blanks, or toy caps then we (Winston Churchill Theatre) must know about this a minimum of 4 weeks prior to the show so that specific permission may be sought.

The pro-forma Risk Assessment is by no means comprehensive, but should give you starting points for what the type of thing we need you to risk assess for your show - please download the Risk Assessment Template, and fill it in accordingly to your shows activities.

Technical Requirements

For any show at the Winston Churchill Theatre, we need the Technical Requirements Form sent back to the Senior Technician no later than six weeks prior to your get-in date. This is to ensure that all licensing permissions are in place, and also to allow us to discuss any potential issues with you.
