Tara Arts in Eastfield, London – Britain’s first multicultural theatre – was co-founded in 1976 by the current Artistic Director, Jatinder Verma.

The Foyer Bar at Tara Arts opens an hour and a half before performances and remains accessible until late after showings. This requires a high turnover of glasses, needed at a moment’s notice. For years, the team at Tara Arts hand washed glasses, which was an unsustainable option in the long-term, so a more viable solution to glass-washing had to be found.

After a recommendation from a site surveyor on the best warewasher for the establishment and researching products available on the market, Tara Arts theatre found the Classeq brand. The under counter warewasher was the perfect choice for the bar, due to the ease and speed of its use – only requiring a two minute cycle – as well as being compact, so not to take up much needed storage space.

Alexandra Wyatt, General Manager at the Tara Arts Theatre commented:, added:

“Since installing the warewasher, we have had absolutely no complaints, and the Classeq team even called up to ensure the smooth running of the machine. The glasses are cleaned in an incredibly fast time, without compromising on quality, and that is really impressive – and means that our staff don’t have to stay late to wash up! The novelty of just having a warewasher still hasn’t worn off and we couldn’t recommend this machine more. It is easy to use, and you can barely notice it under the counter, which was a really important feature to us, as we didn’t have that much space to play with.”
