These spaces have been the venue for name a couple...... the internationally renowned guitarists, the Katona Twins and Liverpool Mozart Orchestra as well as hosting the annual Wirral Speech and Music festivals. The performance spaces offer flexible high quality accommodation to showcase the talents of your aspiring performers.

The Theatre & Stage, with 14 rows of retractable staged seating, offers a performance venue for 290 together with a fully equipped stage with sound and lighting facilities on request.
The layout of the seating is 14 rows of 19 seats plus a split row either side of the sound desk, 8 on the left and 7 on the right. There is also a further split row of 15 seats suitable for staff or performer seating as access is partially obstructed by the spot lights, when in place.
It is also possible to put one or two rows of seats on the floor area in front of the stage for additional capacity of around 25.
