Main stage

The main cornerHOUSE performance space is an auditorium with raised and sloped stage, stage lighting system and PA facilities (a full specification is available on request). Seating capacity is dependant on any national or local restrictions and/or guidance in place as well as on other factors that may limit the seating capacity. We can provide details of current capacity when booking enquiries are made.

Please see the attached PDFs for dimensions of studio and main theatre spaces

The centre also has a box office and foyer area which has lighted exhibition areas and a licensed bar with further lit display spaces.


There is a smaller studio space which is a black box theatre that seats up to 60 and can be set up in a variety of ways to suit the needs of individual productions. Layout Staging blocks are available, as is lighting and sound. (This space doubles as the dressing room for larger productions on the main stage).
