Theatre Hire

 

The Theatre is available for short term hire by Visiting Companies when not required by the Repertory Players for their season of five main plays. The season runs from September to July and on average there are approximately thirty six weeks during the season when the theatre is available for hire.

A Hire period normally covers 1 week – Sunday to Saturday although part weeks/days can be booked as the theatre can tailor your booking to suit your requirements.

Individual areas within the theatre  e.g. Foyer and Bar only or Rehearsal Room only can be booked separately depending on availability.
