  • Live Events
  • Engagement
  • Community Work
  • Heritage and Architecture

Spaces we have:

  • Red Brick – This  auditorium sits within our beautiful Grade II* listed red brick Georgian Chapel and is used for talks, theatre, music performances, film screenings and more. Seated this holds 240 and for standing gigs its a capacity of 400. It’s called Red Brick Auditorium because it sits within our red brick chapel building.
  • Cornerstone – a fully accessible, self-contained meeting room for community groups, professionals and individuals to use. Our flexible space is perfect for you to explore arts and culture professionally. This dedicated space is perfect for rehearsals, choirs, developing an idea, to host a team building day or to meet up with your team and associates. Whether you’re interested in weekly meets, networking events or if you just need a welcoming neutral location for an hour or two this is the space for you. We can provide what you need from a specially configured furniture arrangement to a simple empty room.
  • Atrium – We serve a large selection of cask ales and craft beers from breweries home and abroad. All this complements the home-made dishes that are served in our wonderful café & bar.
  • Copper – Seating just under 100 people, our Copper auditorium is the screen we use for most of our cinema programme. We are a DCI (digital cinema initiatives) compliant cinema which uses the highest quality projector and 5.1 digital sound. Our Copper auditorium also doubles up as a stunning and intimate studio space for performances. This space is named Copper Auditorium because it sits within the new part of our building in the copper box.
