Odyssey Restoration

With £1.2m of the estimated £1.6m that it will cost to restore the Odyssey, work has now begun on the rebuild. The Odyssey team has appointed Borras of St Albans as the main contractor, and design company Robert Martell & Partners. Scaffolding will go up at the end of September/ beginning of October and this tends to drive lots more support, so if you are yet to purchase a seat sponsorship or Advanced Booking List (ABL) Membership, now is the time as there are a limited number left and everything must go!

If you would like to buy an Advanced Booking List (that enables priority booking on tickets), sponsor a seat or any other part of the building, help out or say hello, please email Marie [email protected]
