Alas no Richard. Not thorough. I'd thought I'd explained on my blog. The main job which is cleaning the theatre of the soot and smoke damage hasn't even started. After a multitude of emails back and forth, after a request for and obtaining a full check for asbestos, after much dicussion about seat cleaning and scaffolding, nothing has been done. Now we are literally back to square one - they plan to do a second survey of what needs doing!
My electricians can't do anything more until the theatre is cleaned. The curtains cannot be rehung until the theatre is cleaned. The seats cannot be cleaned until the theatre is cleaned. The decorators can't do a thing until the theatre is cleaned. It is all very frustrating. I am worried now that I will have to cancel my Christmas Season.
