The Theatre

Our theatre space is heavily used with our own internal productions taking 90% of theatre time. There are few opportunities for external hire.

Recently refurbished, the 121-seat auditorium offers a comfortable and intimate audience experience. It has full lighting and sound rigs with computerised controls.

Stage dimensions (approx) 6.5m x 6.5m
Two dressing rooms
Green room with artistes’ toilet and kitchen
Technical staff available as requested for hire.

Rehearsal Rooms

Two enclosed rehearsal rooms can be hired during the day only, and are subject to limited availability, offering space for rehearsals and small classes and meetings.

Club Room and Bar Area

With the original old barn beams exposed, the Club Room offers a small but unique comfortable setting for small scale events. (Restricted age limit to over 25). The foyer of the theatre can provide a greeting/reception area. We are happy to hire to non-members, but our license does no cover the supply of alcohol to non-members and cannot therefore offer a bar service to non-members.

Film Location

A view of the pictures on this site will suggest a wide variety of possible ‘settings’ for the film location finder - including small theatre, old barn exterior, character pub, meeting room etc. The rooms and facilities also offer an ideal ‘location base’ for small/medium production units.
