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). The auditorium seats up to 150 and has been used in a variety of configurations, some of which limit the seating capacity. (For example up to 75 people can be seated at cabaret tables.)

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).
