The Blake Theatre is available to hire for drama, dance and music shows, as well as films, lectures, presentations, dinners and parties. The theatre seats 500 people on raked seating and two balconies, but it can also be used without the seats or partly seated and standing. For dinners, our capacity is usually 100.
The Blake Theatre has a fully licensed bar which is included in our hire package. Also included is a technician to do sound and lighting for your show. Our full technical specification is available to download on this page.
Backstage, there are two well-equipped dressing rooms. There is a small orchestra pit and we have a piano which is also available by arrangement in advance for a fee of £65 to cover tuning. Our box office can sell tickets for your production and tickets are sold online through our website too.
