Our Spaces

Main Auditorium

Our versatile auditorium offers theatre-style seating for 296 people. With the raked seating retracted, it has a standing capacity of 400 and measures approximately 19 by 12½ metres. There is an extendable stage as well as a large cinema screen, to which a computer can be connected for a presentation or film. A full lighting rig and audio system are also place. The green room (upstairs), with hanging rail and mirrors etc are included with the hire of the main auditorium, if required.

Waveney Room

On a day-to-day basis the Waveney Room is our main café area, however it can be closed off to the public and hired privately. It can be set up with tables and chairs in various formats and a small cinema screen is also in place, to which a computer can be connected for a presentation or film. The dimensions of this space are approximately 10 by 6 metres.

Studio/Council Chamber

Directly above the Waveney Room, this space is also approximately 10 by 6 metres. The room is carpeted and has tables and chairs that can be formatted in rows, as a boardroom or conference space. A laptop can be connected to a large television on the wall for presetations or film.

Main & Upper Galleries

These spaces usually have art exhibitions in situ which can include sculptures on plinths so they are not generally hired out on their own, but as an additional space for meeting & greeting, socialising etc. It is regrettably not possible to hire the galleries to display your own artwork.

Bar & Café

Because these facilities are run by external contractors they cannot be hired out or used by members of the public or other organisations. We can however arrange to staff them and provide food and drink for your event.

Entire Venue

This covers all of the above spaces plus our entrance lobby. The entire venue can be hired outside of our usual opening hours of Monday-Saturday 10am-4pm.

Equipment

In addition to the equipment detailed in each space, we also have a lectern and flipchart/whiteboard available.

Parking

Our yard can be used for the purpose of unloading/loading equipment but then vehicles need to be taken away and parked. There are various pay-and-display car parks nearby, the closest of which is approximately a 2 minute walk away.
