Nevill Holt Opera House

The grand opening of a new world class opera house saw the unveiling of Lindum’s largest ever and high profile joinery commission.


Towering, bespoke barn doors - more than five metres high and weighing half a tonne each - and specialist sound proof fire doors were installed at the new theatre, which is situated within a Grade II* listed stable yard in the grounds of the 17th Century Nevill Holt Estate in Leicestershire.

It followed earlier work, which saw our team of skilled craftsmen create bespoke window frames and shutters, along with handrails and balcony nosing and general joinery in the main arena and opera stage.

All the work was completed at our North Hykeham workshop and committed half of our staff for six months.

The spectacular new venue has been designed by RIBA Stirling Prize-winning architectural studio, Witherford Watson Mann. The architects worked closely with world-leading acoustic experts, Sound Space Vision.

Lindum Joinery was commissioned by main construction contractor Messenger, from Collyweston near Stamford.

David Ross, Chairman of the David Ross Foundation, said: “Nevill Holt Opera has a clear mission to enrich lives, and empower young people, through the power of music and the arts."
