This room can also be used as a theatrical or concert performances hall. The stage measuring approximately 14ft x 12ft is available with or without additional stage extension (comes in 4ft x 4ft blocks) and is decorated with beautiful lava blue stage curtains. The room can be setup in many different configurations, which can utilise up to 200 chairs as a maximum allowance. The stage area is free to use but any extensions to it incurs an extra cost.
We have also introduced a specialised stage lighting rig, offering 12 stage spotlights including four DMX moving head lighting systems. When used, this reduces the amount of equipment any performer has to bring in to the hall, which should be very useful to them but also reduces and trip hazards from the floor area for us and any guests. Allow our knowledgable staff to provide technical support to help make your event/planning stress free at an extra cost. As with any reception, due to the nature of the event, the bar and Rundle room would be available to the hirer at no extra cost.
