The wooden floor is excellent for dancing and the room has blackout blinds suitable for showing films or electronic presentations. The walls are cladded to give excellent acoustics for music events.
The stage is demountable so it can be set up in the shape you prefer, be it a rectangle for a live band or DJ or a catwalk for your fundraising fashion show. If you don’t need a stage we can remove it for you. There is also a sound and lighting system and a hearing loop.
We have changing rooms with a shower for exercise class users or performers. The changing rooms are near the stage end of the room.
