Unicorn Theatre, London

Unicorn Theatre, London

United Kingdom

The Unicorn is the UK’s leading theatre for young audiences, producing an eclectic and surprising programme of work year-round for children aged 6 months to 18 years.
Based near London Bridge the theatre presents and tours around twelve shows each year, at home and abroad, to around 90,000 children and their parents and carers, and works extensively with schools and in the community to invite children from all cultures into a conversation about art and the world we live in.

A selection of Philip Payne emergency luminaires from the Architectural range were chosen for the installation including the 250DW. Its versatility ensures the 250DW remains one of Payne’s best sellers. It can be mounted above the door but the slim profile also makes it possible to mount the product to the side of high feature doors whilst remaining compliant with the statutory mounting height.
Rear or top cable entry provides options where surface conduit is required although the geometry of the product lends itself to concealed cable entry particularly in stairwell mounting situations.
The wide variety of available finishes has seen the product extensively used in theatre and cinema applications.
