Assembly Rooms to receive £24m revamp.


New Assembly Rooms

Derby City Council have revealed their plans to refurbish the Assembly Rooms at a cost of £24 million.

The work will see a new plant room installed on the roof of the Assembly Rooms car park and some essential re-wiring of the building, new stage lighting, audio and video equipment, improved internal decorations, repairs to the building and the removal of asbestos. 

There will also be enhancements to the building with the creation of new St Pancras station-styled frontages, removal of the concrete fins to give a clearer view from the New Assembly Rooms, enlarged lobby, improved lounge areas, extensive improvements to the Darwin Suite and new seating and toilets throughout the building.

The building will be renamed as the ‘New Assembly Rooms’ and is expected to re-open by autumn 2020.
