Theatre Specification

The Full Auditorium Space

When the space is configured as a full theatre it has 308 fully upholstered seats.



The Half Auditorium Space

It can also be configured as a 100-seat theatre since there is a folding acoustic wall across the middle. 5 rows of seats are movable and therefore can be placed in front of that wall. Those 5 rows of seats are divided into 3 sections and can be placed in any way on the floor. Since all the seats are retractable the space can have any configuration that any director desires, whether it is thrust stage, room for an orchestra in a kind of pit, theatre in the round etc.


The Rear Auditorium Space

When the acoustic wall is in place the space behind this can form another auditorium.  Movable staging is used so that any configuration can be achieved in that space. The back auditorium as we will call it, will probably have a different acoustic from the front one, and might be more suitable for live unamplified music. Using the five movable rows along with loose seats the number of configurations is infinite.


The Full Floor

All the seats are retractable and the folding wall in retractable into its own space. When this is done it leaves 250 sq metres (approx 2,700sq feet) of sprung junkers floor, which can be used for dance, cabaret, a traditional session etc.


The Stage


That 250sq metres includes the stage area, which is behind the proscenium arch.  The proscenium arch is 11 meters across by 5.3 metres high and there is 1.7-metre wing space on each side. The stage manager’s corner is on stage right. There are stage gantries at a metre above the proscenium arch. The stage is 8.95 metres deep (29.36 feet). There is a fly tower 13 metres high and the rigging is as follows:

  • Back cyc. is on a drill-operated winch,
