Spaces for hire
The Auditorium

"The Gallery is a beautiful space to exhibit, full of light and warmth." Adam Jennings, Red Box New Media ltd.

The Theatre is the perfect place to hold your activity, and with low rates and discounts for community groups and regular bookers, it may be cheaper than you think.

Auditorium (Dimensions: 10.33m x 7.58m with Balcony)

Ideal for lectures and presentations, the Auditorium can seat up to 213 persons but also works well with smaller numbers. Adjoining the Bar and Foyer on the ground floor, it has a complete range of professional lighting and is fully equipped for multimedia conferencing.

The bar

The Bar (Dimensions: 8.14m x 6.24m)

Perfect for refreshment breaks, small meetings and as a break out space, the Bar adjoins the Auditorium and overlooks Spring Street. A particular feature of the Bar is its stunning murals, painted by Graham Rust, one of Europe’s finest muralists.

The Gallery (Dimensions: 7.47m x 7.88m)

This room, with laminate flooring and excellent natural light, is reached by stairs leading from the Bar (or directly from the Balcony). It provides a tranquil backdrop for regularly changing exhibitions of paintings and photography. The Gallery, which is available for hire outside performance and film showing times, is perfect for meetings or as a breakout space. We trust that hirers will enjoy (and respect) the wall hung exhibits.

The Space (Dimensions: 8.01m x 4.83m, max width approx 6.11m)

This 'room in the sky', situated on the floor above the Gallery and reached by stairs from the Bar and Balcony, is designed to stimulate creative thought! A flexible space, with lush carpeting, it is suitable for group work, meetings, interviews or brainstorming sessions.

The Rehearsal Room (Dimensions: 6.34m x 4.67m)
