Theatre Hire : Venue Information
Brentwood Theatre is a fully-licenced venue with two performance spaces and a bar, all available to hire for your event or production.
Our versatile Main Auditorium has retractable seating and a semi-sprung dancefloor, allowing numerous staging possibilities for different events. With a well-equipped lighting rig and sound system included, we can provide flexible seating formats to fit your needs. Our standard seating configuration provides 113 seats, although it is possible to increase this to around 150.
This space also suits events with the seating retracted and a more relaxed cabaret-style set up – ideal for awards, comedy nights and weddings/parties.
The Audrey Longman Studio
The Audrey Longman Studio is our more intimate 35-seat space, also with a lighting and sound rig. This is a great space for acoustic performances, magic nights, readings or rehearsing new work.
The Spotlight Bar
Capable of hosting small informal events for up to 50 people, our bar is situated at our main entrance and available to hire on occasions when the Main Auditorium or Audrey Longman Studio are not in use.
We have two dressing rooms on our Ground Floor, suitable for up to 10 performers each and both equipped with a sink and clothes rail.
Larger groups using the Main Auditorium often hire The Audrey Longman Studio at a reduced rate as an additional dressing room space. It can be divided to provide separate changing areas if needed.
We have separate male and female toilets on the First Floor, as well as a Disabled Toilet and multi-gender toilet on the Ground Floor.
There is a Disabled Lift between the Ground and First Floor and a small kitchen area which may be used by hiring groups if required.
