  • Our black box theatre space can hold up to 150 people. Create Theatre is a fantastic venue to be hired out for performances, lectures, speeches and conferences. This is a great space to hire out as it offers amazing technical benefits and comes along with a green room which is situated behind the theatre itself.

Performance Studios
