Hire A Space
Guest companies and events are an important part of our programme.
We can accommodate guest shows in the Main Auditorium and on The Other Stage. The main stage and auditorium has full basic lighting, sound, and staging equipment; plus our brilliant technical team to support you. The auditorium seats up to 507 people; the main stage can accommodate up to 120 performers for drama, concerts, dance, musical theatre, conferences and corporate events. The foyer stage suits smaller events: readings, bands, scratch performances and stand-up. The foyer can seat up to 150 people.
Please note that the main house and foyer spaces are usually booked 8-9 months in advance, but there is often availability during weekday daytimes for events booked at shorter notice.
Submissions can be accepted all year round. Spaces are not allocated on a ‘first-come, first-served basis’ and all requests will be reviewed at regular intervals, after which a member of staff will contact you.
