Technical Facilities

studio 1 lighting

Workshop Theatre resources comprise four performance/rehearsal spaces, all equipped with lighting and sound. These are:

Studio 1, a flexible performance space that can be used in any configuration with a retractable seating bank which holds up to eighty-four people;

Studio 2, a teaching and rehearsal room ideal for experimental work and small-scale performances;

Studio 3, a small space for group work and occasional performances;

The Banham Theatre, a fifty-eight-seat traditional 'end-on' theatre.

In addition to studio space, the Workshop Theatre building provides dressing rooms and a student social area. We also operate a technical suite for the recording, mixing and editing of sound and video; a stage workshop for constructing props and set building; and a wardrobe department containing an extensive collection of costumes (including period costumes) as well as facilities for making and mending.
