The Howard Theatre, Downing College, Cambridge

Hare & Humphreys assisted with the design and colour scheme for the interior of the auditorium.

As well as carrying out the decoration of the interior in traditional paints we also painted the sky ceiling, the tromp l’oiel to the ceiling and cornice, the decorative pelmet painted to imitate silk with a gold braid edge, the painted canvas of the “Three Graces” above the proscenium arch and the painted classical scene on the stage curtain.
