Please note that our charges are laid out in the Table of charges document that you can link to (bottom left of this page). Reductions on this charge are only possible if the hire is for the benefit of a non-theatre related charity and/or no admission fee is charged. 'Box office split' arrangements are subject to discussion with the Bookings Manager. All bookings require 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 5pm.
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, and PAT tested. You will be required to provide a Risk Assessment for your hire.
