The Theatre, which seats up to 425, is a cosy venue for both artists and audiences. Fully retractable seating and lighting bars encourage innovative staging configurations, allowing the artist to manipulate performances in a versatile and flexible space.

The more intimate construction of the theatre facilitates a greater degree of resonance within the space to the considerable benefit of performances involving un-amplified speech and music. This makes the Theatre perfect for smaller scale events that require closeness and interaction between performers and the audience.
