NEW seats are set to be used for the first time next month at the Brentwood Theatre.

The Shenfield Road venue recently held a fundraising drive to help pay for changes to their auditorium seating.

Having raised £4,000, they are now ready to be installed and will increase the capacity of the theatre to 118.

Along with the extra 20 seats, they are also retractable and have improved sightlines for audience members.
