An innovative 100 seat flexible black-box studio designed to enhance cutting edge performance and suitable for new music, art performances, theatre productions and film screenings of all types. The venue has fixed acoustics with a low reverberation time and duplicate input points.
The Organ Studio
An elegant 80 seat venue equally suited to solo, chamber and organ performance.

Our five performance venues are located around a large spacious atrium and foyer, accessed by two public entrances and split across three levels connected by a central staircase and lifts. The box office, cloakroom, restaurant and bars are all located in this area. Views looking out over the campus make these spaces ideal for people to gather for drinks and food before and during the intervals of events. HD screens and speakers are located throughout the foyer area for announcements and show relay from the venues, or for background music to be played.
