Sound – a multi-way cable from back-stage left to balcony allows a range of sound equipment to be used, this includes XLR plug ins for music equipment or keyboards, microphones or other equipment.

The music inputs can be balanced by the operator in the Balcony (giving an excellent view of the stage) via our mixer desk or arrangements can be made if the hirer wishes to use their own.
