Paul Davenport Hall




“The careful work that both John O’Keefe and John Nicholson carried out in tracking down and getting rid of structure carried noises and HVAC, and the new design of the shape and texture of the walls that both of them created, allows the performers to produce sounds with complete control and absolutely no distortion.”

“The transformation which has taken place in Talbot College’s Paul Davenport Theatre is nothing short of amazing. A 45 year-old acoustic nightmare has been changed into a beautiful and acoustically superior performing space. There has been unanimous and high praise for the hall. We are thrilled with this incredibly successful transformation.”
