Hiring the Plaza

If you wish to hire the Plaza Theatre, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Please note that our standard fee for a theatre hire is £600 a day or £3600 a week (no VAT is chargeable). Reductions on this charge are only possible if the hire is for the benefit of a non-theatre related charity and/or no entry fee is charged. Hires can be on the basis of box office shares, subject to discussion with the Theatre Hire Manager. None of these alternatives to the standard charges can apply without the agreement of the Board of Trustees.

If an event requires lighting or sound we will provide an operator or someone to supervise your technicians. All the theatre's technicians are unpaid and may have daytime employment commitments, so weekday technical support is typically available from 6pm.

If you require equipment that the theatre does not possess then you can either use your own, or hire (we can often recommend dealers) but we must insist that our technicians are present when it is set up and it must conform to safety standards. Any equipment brought into the theatre should be adequately insured by the hirer.
