The New Dreadnought Theatre at HMS Sultan saw its first official function recently as the Establishment welcomed the Chief Naval Engineer Officer Vice Admiral Simon Lister CB OBE to formally open the facility to start off the CNEO Conference.

The Dreadnought Theatre is a refurbished conference facility which has taken 18 months to develop and replaces the old Brunel Theatre.

It includes a modern presentation suite with three projector screens, theatre quality sound and new I.T. facilities. Boasting a fixed seating capacity for 305 guests, the facility also has additional space to safely uplift to 365 guests as required.
