Malvern sometimes seems full of places like this. The little tucked away gems that you could walk by and not even realize they were there.
The Theatre of Small Convenience first opened it's doors in November 1999 and as you can guess from its name was previously a Victorian gentleman's lavatory. Now able to seat 12 people or 16 people standing it was recognized as the worlds smallest theatre in the 2002 edition of the Guinness Book of Records.
The shows put on are mostly short and personal performances, with booking not normally required, it's usually just turn up and request a show. It was in one of these "between performances" that the panorama was shot, with the owner donning one of his theatrical masks. If your wondering how many faces appear on the walls and ceiling, I just don't know.
Taken with a Nikon D300 and a Nikkor 10.5mm f/2.8G fisheye lens. Mounted on a Nodal Ninja 5 panoramic head atop a Manfrotto 055XPROB tripod. 7 bracketed shots (-3 -2 -1 0 +1 +2 +3 +4) taken at 6 positions 60° apart, tilted 15° down and another set of shots taken looking straight up. Raw files then processed in Nikon CaptureNX 1.3 before being stitched and fused together using PTGui Pro 8.2.2 / Smartblend 1.2.5 / enfuse 3.2 and converted between projections using Pano2VR 2.3 beta 1.
