The Malthouse, King’s School, Canterbury

Harwood Building Control were proud to have been involved with the magnificent Malthouse development providing Approved Inspector services on behalf of The King’s School, Canterbury. This dominant structure had sat disused for many years before given a new lease of life.

Drawing inspiration from centuries of drama at the school, the new Malthouse Theatre was officially open for both school use and to the general public earlier this year. Housed in a Victorian Malthouse on its own 4-acre site next to the King’s Recreation Centre. The Malthouse Theatre seats an audience of 334, with additional standing room. To incorporate the King’s highly regarded musical heritage, the Malthouse includes an orchestra pit and state-of-the-art technical rigs for sound and light. Additional studio spaces for dance and drama teaching feature a sprung floor built to a specification set by the Royal Ballet.

Harwood Building Control helped re-establish this impressive building within Canterbury’s historical City Centre.
