Fresh air is drawn into the building by natural airflow which means the air is circulated twice as fast as air conditioning would.

Warm air is provided from a heat pump drawing heat from below the lawns at the front of the theatre.

Rainwater is harvested to provide for the toilets.

In the past 12 months we reduced our KwH output by 17.6%. PIR sensors have been installed across the venue to reduce lighting use and we have started to switch light fittings that need new tubes to a new LED fitting.

Aylesbury Waterside Theatre has achieved Gold Standard for recycling.
