The Theatre

The Theatre seats 445 people on 3 levels – the stalls, circle and gallery. Our main programme takes place here with professional visiting companies, local amateur groups, schools and community organisations all regularly performing on the stage. Many of our Get Involved activities also result in performances which take place in this main auditorium. We also house a regular programme of cinema screenings, where audiences can enjoy exceptional sound and projection in comfortable and relaxed surroundings.

When booking tickets for any of these events, a member of our Ticket Sales Team will be happy to talk you through the seating options in The Theatre, to make sure your experience is as enjoyable as possible.

The Lab

The Lab is our versatile, state of the art studio space. A comfortable home for much of our family activity, it also doubles as a performance space for our smaller scale shows and an incredible backdrop for a lot of our Get Involved workshop activity. Flooded with natural light and with wooden sprung floors and various seating options, it’s a really special space to see a show or take part in one.

The Base

The Base is an underground workshop space and the hub for much of our digital activity. It’s quickly decked out as a recording studio, training room or conference space.

Bars

Our two bars, B1 and B2, are open during performances and cinema screenings.
