Theatre & Concert Venue

SUB MENU

At the heart of Great Hall is a professionally-equipped theatre in a stylish, modern, yet traditional Proscenium Arch format with intimate wrap-around circle balcony.

Adjustable acoustic measures allow the auditorium to work well for both drama and live music. The theatre incorporates professional technical infrastructure and backstage facilities, including 'ladder-free' access to high-level rigging positions over the stage and auditorium, motorised flying system, adjustable fore-stage elevators, large control room, dressing rooms and green room. We have also made a significant investment in modern LED stage lighting, which is provided in our 'Standard Rig'.


Hire Rates

From £110 per hour / £550 per day / £550 per performance.

Our Bechstein concert grand piano is also available for music events in Great Hall for an additional charge. Please enquire for details.
