Middleton Hall

Middleton Hall’s spectacular theatre has tiered seating for 406 people and can be used for a wide range of events including concerts, theatre productions, conferences, awards nights and surround-sound cinema screenings.

The large, comfortable seats afford a great view of the raised proscenium stage, equipped with excellent, versatile lighting and sound systems. There is also a large projection screen at the front and the capability to project on to a rear screen. The large stage has generous wing space, and a well-equipped backstage area, comprising a green room area and two dressing rooms that can accommodate up to 50 people.

Our spacious foyer can be booked for event registration or pre-event drinks and canapes. Middleton Hall’s Arts Café and Bar is also open weekdays for refreshments and can be opened to cater exclusively for guests attending evening events in the main auditorium.
