Reimagining CFT Spaces

We have been working with Randell Design Group’s interior design team to reimagine our Festival Theatre cafés and bar and to create warm and inviting spaces that evoke a sense of community, colour, fun and a sense of 'theatre'.

Together we’ve been able to support local and regional companies and craftspeople. As we reveal our interior redesign with the first performance of South Pacific, here’s an insight into some of the features from these brilliant companies.

Morgan Furniture design and make elegant seating and tables for the contract market from its dedicated factory in Southbourne, Hampshire. Their efforts to continually improve their sustainability are impressive. 

Smile Plastics is an innovative company which transforms waste materials into unique decorative panels. Our new striking table tops are fashioned from 100% recycled materials. See if you can spot some of the yoghurt pots!

We’re bringing the outside inside with Kentia palms and moss installations all supplied by Bristol-based company PlantCare.

We up-cycled some existing chair pads with new fabrics and more comfortable padding using experienced Emsworth-based company S Roberts Upholsterers

Try out the incredibly comfy beanbags from The Big Bean Bag Company. They use BioFoam® beads (a compostable biopolymer made from plants), threads manufactured from recycled plastic bottles and 100% cotton weave fabric. All materials used can be repurposed or recycled. 

Based in the historic craft town of Farnham in Surrey, The Neon Sign Company have created three bespoke LED neon signs which transform the foyers. 

Inspyer Lighting specialise in the design, supply and installation of innovative and exciting lighting schemes. Hanging over the cafés are some of the largest sculptural bulbs ever made! 

Avko Interior, based in Hampshire, are proud to be eco-friendly whilst also providing durable, water-based paint finishes. We turned to Avko to make striking new painted triangles throughout the foyer.

Probably the oldest sign company in West Sussex, we have again worked with Peter Signs of Worthing on bespoke graphics and signage on windows, cafes, bars and beyond for Festival 2021.

Southsea Deckchairs wanted to make deckchairs that were strong, durable and practical. We’re delighted to have purchased 40 colourful chairs to enhance the holiday feeling of our outdoor seating.

Tom Jago Garden Design in Worthing will be updating and enhancing the landscaping outside the Café on the Park and also in The Brasserie garden to make green and inviting spaces in which to relax.
