As part of Nottingham Light Night 2019 the Lace Market Theatre was offering behind the scenes tours and as this is a local theatre that I keep meaning to visit but haven’t got around to (I promise I’ll go see something there this year!) we thought it would be a nice change of pace to the normal Light Night activities.

27 St Mary’s Gate is a building in the Lace Market area of Nottingham. It was built in 1849 for Louis Augustin Baillon, the Vice Consul of France, as consulate offices. By 1868 it had been turned into a lace warehouse.
The Birkin Building in the Lace Market in Nottingham was designed by Thomas Chambers Hine another architect who, like Watson Fothergill, made a big impact on the city. It was, of course, a lace warehouse made for Richard Birkin, a lace manufacturer, in 1855.
The Adams Building is one of my favourite buildings in Nottingham, a Grade II listed Victorian lace warehouse dating from 1855 which was designed by Thomas Chambers Hine, one of Nottingham’s best architects. During Open Heritage weekend last year we were able to go on a free tour of the building led by an architect from the company who helps preserve the building, which proved to be a intriguing warren of rooms and spiral staircases.
