The Space @ His Place

The Space is an 800 capacity seated auditorium at the heart of this grade II listed building, capable of hosting a wide variety of events, ranging from solo and orchestral classical concerts, to theatre productions, cabaret, popular music concerts, film shows and more.
Along with the superb oak ceiling, the design of the space offers accoustics matched only by some of the finest concert venues in the country. An impressive venue in design and decor, The Space also offers basic in-house lighting, and a 1.8kw PA system. Hirers may bring in their own equipment should they prefer. The hire fee includes the services of our in-house technician.
