STAGE LIGHTING & Sound
Available to hirers by prior arrangement only.
Sway Village Hall benefits from a fitted light and sound system.
Lighting – three over-stage pipes (20 kg SWL ea) and limited front of stage lighting mounting locations. Analogue lighting system fed from Hall Balcony (3.85m height over auditorium) supply four dimmer packs providing 24 controlled lighting channels. A range of stage lights are available to suit most hirers, including:
– Spotlights, operated manually and focusable
– Profile lights for highlighting visiting speakers, demonstrations, bands, actors etc. Also available is a range of Gobo designs and rotators to add special lighting effects from moving clouds to just a rotating logo of your choice
– Flood/Wash lights to provide depth, colour, lighting scenery and mood
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.
Once balanced the sound can be outputted from the desk into the cinema surround sound system, offering excellent audibility and definition throughout the hall and a hearing aid loop.
Four ambient mics are located above the stage for general use, handheld wireless mics are available by prior arrangement.
Video Streaming / Broadcast System – Sway Village Hall now has two pan, tilt and zoom cameras and one fixed camera permanently set up so that events can be broadcast live to the web or broadcasts can be shown on our large cinema screen.
