Theatre Hire

The Theatre is an outstanding venue for performing artists, film screenings and conferences. In its first year, the 246-seat amphitheatre style theatre won the 2003 Dolphin Award for Best Venue

The Byron Theatre

The tiered seating can be retracted to leave an open space with a 360 meter square sprung-dance floor suitable for dance events or a cabaret style set-up. Now, with an awesome new sound system in the Theatre and a comprehensive ticketing system with increasing online sales – the Byron Theatre is ideal for your next event!


The Theatre also boasts a magnificent 1986 Steinway Concert Grand Piano, originally manufactured in Hamburg, which is available for use to events held in the Byron Theatre.
