Johnstone’s Trade has helped to deliver the perfect performance for Edinburgh’s historic King’s Theatre, which was redecorated around a series of events at the venue in just a seven-week period.

Originally opened in 1906, King’s Theatre is one of Scotland’s most prestigious theatres and has an incredibly busy yearround programme of shows and events. A strict seven-week window was allocated for the Nevin of Edinburgh decorators to complete the building’s transformation, and with events planned at the theatre as part of the Edinburgh festival, there was no margin for delay.

Johnstone’s Trade’s high performance Acrylic Durable Matt was applied to public corridors, the main staircase, auditorium and bar area of the venue by the decorators to deliver a highly durable, stain resistant and washable finish.

The 20-strong decorating team was also involved in the painting of a specially commissioned mural, designed by renowned Scottish artist, John Byrne.

Working at height and over evenings and weekends, the decorators pulled out all the stops to deliver a show-stopping finish with Johnstone’s Trade, ensuring the theatre will continue to dazzle audiences for years to come.

Mark Nevin, contracts director at Nevin said: “This was a logistically challenging project as it was essentially a three-month project which we needed to complete in just seven weeks, with no margin for error or delay. Our team literally worked around the clock, seven days a week throughout and using Johnstone’s Trade ensured we achieved the perfect result first time.”

Nevin’s impressive work at the theatre recently won the award in Period and Restoration category at the Johnstone’s Painter of the Year 2013 awards.
