Guest companies and events are an important part of our programme.
We can accommodate guest shows in the main house and on the foyer stage.
The main stage and auditorium has full basic lighting, sound, and staging equipment; plus our brilliant technical team to support you. Talk to us now about your show.
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 200 people.
