Can We Decorate the Space

Of course!  You are welcome to decorate and adapt the space, provided the decoration does not damage the space or cause a fire risk. 


We want your show to sell out, so we are more than happy to help with your publicity! We encourage all of our hires to send over a PR kit to help us promote the show.

The best PR Kits include:

  • A high quality poster of the show in both A4 and 1x1.

  • Images - rehearsal images, actor's headshots, creative team headshots. All 1x1

  • Videos - Rehearsal videos, interviews and announcements. All 1x1

  • Written Material - A blurb about the show, information on the actors and creatives, an interesting hook, any reviews or quotes.

This will be included in our email newsletters and on our social media.  In the lead-up to the show, you can also put leaflets, banners, and posters in the space. 

Can I Bring My Own Catering?

Please discuss catering options for your event with us. 
You are welcome to bring your own cold food for company use (not for sale), and we can provide an urn of hot water to use for hot beverages. We do not have cooking or refrigeration facilities available.
