The theatre is housed in a former Quaker Meeting House and is the perfect stage size for the truly memorable intimate (but not too intimate) theatrical experience.
Housed in a former Quaker Meeting house, our Main Gallery space and FOH/Front of House exhibition space are both programmed year-round with a cross-section of contemporary and locally produced visual art.
The studios are equipped with lighting, heating & Wi-Fi, and artists have their own access to the space. One of these studios is a dedicated bursary space awarded to an emerging Degree Student from WIT’s School of Art.
