Following minor repairs to the roof of the building, conservation treatment of the murals was carried out in early 2019.

Crumbling plaster and small plaster losses along the edges of historic cracks were consolidated and filled.

Patches of actively flaking paint and blind detachment were re-adhered, and small paint losses were reintegrated.

Finally, the murals were cleaned to remove a layer of surface soiling that had accumulated as a result of the busy events schedule in the building.

A team of three conservators carried out treatment – Karen Dundas (wallpaintings conservator and project leader), Shannon Miller (paintings conservator) and Cristina Beretta (wallpaintings conservator)
