Venue Hire

Two great theatres under one roof

Our main auditorium is a generous space which retains an intimate feel, while our flexible studio theatre can be presented in a variety of different ways from cabaret-style to raked seating depending on the show. We have a main auditorium with 530 seats, a smaller ‘studio’ theatre with 110 seats, along with a meeting room and various other spaces that are available for hire during the day and in the evening. We can supply professional technical support to assist you with staging your event and ensure it runs smoothly. We are also able to sell tickets for your performances on your behalf.

As an organisation we are supported with public funding from Arts Council England and University of Derby.  It is important that everything we do is consistent with the values of our funders, and our own values as an inclusive and artistically led organisation with learning at the heart of its mission.  We therefore consider all requests to hire our spaces but reserve the right to refuse any event that we believe to be inconsistent with our values and ethos.
