Van Damme loudspeaker cable was chosen from VDC stock to be used throughout the historic and sensitively refurbished Regal Theatre

The Regal theatre in Stowmarket, an art deco theatre screening the latest films and hosting live events, has recently re-opened its doors to the public following a £3.6 million expansion and refurbishment project. Emphasis was placed on restoring and preserving many of the original features of the existing building built back in 1936.

VDC played a key part in the refurbishment project by supplying 3km of Van Damme Blue Series 2x6mm speaker cable, 2km of Van Damme Starquad in various colours and a further 2km of Van Damme Blue Series 2x2.5mm speaker.  The cable was chosen for its rich pedigree, extreme flexibility and outstanding reputation – the same integrator worked on projects at the Dominion, Lyric and Palladium theatres and used Van Damme cabling throughout.  The cable was provided from stock in London and dispatched within a couple days of the order being placed.  

The Regal is a focal point of the town's leisure activities with annual admissions rising from 10,000 to 70,000 in the last 10 years. The multi-million pound revamp included three new auditoria with improved sound and lighting technology, new seating, a new foyer area, café and bar, and an upgrade to the adjacent car park.  

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic impacting the restoration work, the newly renovated venue was opened at the end of May 2021, earlier than expected.
