Martyn Bainbridge has two decades’ design experience with all forms of theatre and exhibition design through his own practice, Martyn Bainbridge Design, formerly in London but now based in rural Oxfordshire. He has worked as a freelance designer in theatres, opera houses and museums worldwide, collaborating with theatre directors such as Steven Pimlott, Barry Kyle, Elijah Moshinsky and Anthony Dowell.

In 2005, Martyn Bainbridge was appointed Associate Designer for Clwyd Theatr Cymru, the principal drama-producing theatre company of Wales. Clwyd Theatr Cymru is run by Terry Hands, formerly head of the RSC, and Martyn has produced numerous designs for the company, including a number directed by Terry himself. Work in 2007-2008 includes a production of Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia and A Toy Epic by Emyr Humphreys. His designs for Clwyd Theatr Cymru also include the critically acclaimed production of The Crucible, directed by Terry Hands in 2004. After working on An Inspector Calls in 2006, Martyn was asked to design a large-scale open air production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, also directed by Barry Kyle, in Canning Park, Singapore in the summer of 2007.

Martyn has also produced designs for several exhibitions, including:

 

·         Madame Tussaud’s Scenerama, Amsterdam ­‑ a three year, multi million pound project to design and produce a major permanent visitor experience for the makers of London’s famous Madame Tussaud’s. Occupying a prominent position on the south side of Amsterdam’s Dam Square, Scenerama brings to life the history of the Netherlands from the Golden Age to modern times using groundbreaking special effects and computer-controlled animatronics.

 

·         Madame Tussaud’s Chamber of Horrors - The infamous Chamber of Horrors occupies the entire lower level of this most famous of London tourist attractions. It recreates a journey through the horrors of history, from Vlad the Impaler to the most notorious figures of the 20th Century, via visits to revolutionary France, where Madame Tussaud started her wax sculpture business, and the eerie Victorian side streets of Jack the Ripper’s London.

 

·         EMI Centenary Exhibition - This exhibition charted a hundred years in the history of this famous record label.

 

·         The Astronomers, London Planetarium. A permanent exhibition at the London Planetarium, this captivating exhibition depicted the ‘watchers of the stars’ through the ages, from Ptolemy to Einstein, within a magical circular space.

 

·         Armada 1588-1988 - a major 400th anniversary commemoration at The National Maritime Museum in Greenwich.

 

·         Lawrence of Arabia, National Portrait Gallery, London ­- The centenary exhibition held by the National Portrait Gallery in London was the largest exhibition relating to T. E. Lawrence that has ever been held.

 

·         The Explorers Gallery, National Maritime Museum, London - a permanent exhibition charting the history of exploration from the Vikings and Polynesians to the often perilous 19th century expeditions to the icy waters of the poles.
