Hampstead Theatre has launched an appeal for donations to help pay for a major redesign of its foyer.

The renowned playhouse in Eton Avenue is planning to carry out a £450,000 revamp of its split-level cafe, box office and foyer space over the summer.

The theatre is appealing to the public for funds because ticket sales and Arts Council support will not cover the full cost.

It has so far found about £350,000 but still needs to raise a further £100,000.

Artistic director Edward Hall said: “Our plans for the foyer will transform the theatre-going experience for generations to come.”
