Whenever our professional schedule allows, we accept proposals for hire events. Local companies and events are an important part of our programming.

The Main House seats 260 people and the Weston Studio seats 74 people and both have full lighting and sound equipment. Within the hire fee we include technical support, a Duty Manager and a front of house team.

Hire Events must be broadly speaking, of a theatrical nature and:
• be produced by an experienced producer. That is a producer who has successfully promoted an event similar in size and complexity.
• if the event is for an invited audience (not public), have a ticketing strategy that takes into account, lost tickets and refunds if customers not satisfied.
• have a competent Technical Coordinator who is able to meet with us and provide detailed technical specifications
• be of a nature that does not conflict with the theatres reputation or artistic goals.

Please note that we are usually booked 9-12 months in advance, but there is often availability during weekday evening for events booked at shorter notice. Submissions can be accepted all year round. Spaces are not allocated on a ‘first come, first served basis’ and all requests will be reviewed at regular intervals, after which a member of staff will contact you.
