General Terms of Hire 

We will pencil your date and hold it at no obligation for one month, or unless otherwise challenged.

To secure your date, you will need to complete a venue hire application form, supply a copy of your current public liability insurance and pay a deposit within 14 days. The deposit is the only up-front cost you will pay. All fees and charges are settled from box office revenue.

For ticketed events, the venue hire fee is applied per performance, capped at four hours.

Depending on availability, you can access the room all day for development, rehearsals and sound check, but only pay for four hours of venue hire.
