Three over-stage pipes (20 kg SWL ea) with range of LED Fresnels and traditional lanterns. DMX lighting system controlled from Hall Balcony (3.85m height over auditorium) with four dimmer packs providing 24 controlled lighting channels plus LED fixtures. 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 – multi-way cable from back-stage left to balcony allows a range of sound equipment to be used, 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 fed into a hearing aid loop.

Six ambient mics are located above the stage for general use, handheld wireless mics are available by prior arrangement.
