Technical Specifications

SEATING CAPACITY

Auditorium 200pax
Raked 222pax

Auditorium is a flat, polished floorboard surface that has historical significance and therefore cannot be screwed into. Maximum capacity for the area is 200 pax however as we use individual seats for the space there are various configurations of tables/chairs that seat fewer in a cabaret style.

The raked seating consists of fixed seating, a permanent mix position at the back of the rake and a temporary mix position directly in front of the lowest seating bank. Flooring cannot be screwed into.

Walls in the FOH area are also of historical significance and therefore cannot have anything affixed to them in any way.
