Electric Palace

A new look and feel for a much-loved historical theatre

We took reference from a whole host of interior design details to build a digital palace for this historical art deco theatre in Bridport.

Originally an opera house, Electric Palace got its name for being one of the first public venues in the UK to be powered by electricity. Now an art deco gem firmly established in the heart of Bridport, Dorset we wanted to make the most of this history for the redesign of the website.

Electric Palace needed a website styled to suit their contrasting character – electric yet traditional, lively with a touch of kitsch. It was built to accommodate for a range of events from comedy shows and west-end performances to ballet and film viewings.

When designing the site we took reference from a whole host of interior design details and old theatre posters to inform this particular blend of old-meets-new.

Along with an easy-to-use ‘What’s on’ page, bookings are catered for via a fully integrated Spektrix booking system. A Wordpress CMS means it’s an easy-to-use platform, which is vital for the small team at Electric Palace.
