Event spaces

Ever wanted to know what it is like to tread the boards? Well now you can! Taste the magic of the theatre by holding your next event on the stage. Product launches, dinner dances, presentations, cocktail receptions and training seminars have all taken centre stage, literally.
Located on the first floor, this space has played host to some of the most prestigious and imaginative events. Glittering award ceremonies, dinner dances, art exhibitions, product launches, wine tastings, interactive theatresports, cocktail receptions and AGMs.
With its high stud and natural daylight, the Hospitality Suite is a perfect venue for your company to enjoy throughout the day... breakfast meetings, business lunch presentations, 'After 5' cocktail receptions or client entertaining.

Fine art. Fine venue.
