Hire Us

Gulbenkian's intimate 340 seat theatre and 300 seat cinema are regularly hired out by local and national groups for a variety of uses. Ideal for conferences, lectures and demonstrations each seat benefits from a clear, unrestricted view of the stage.

Benefits of hiring Gulbenkian include an auditorium fully equipped and professionally staffed, a computerised ticketing system and a lively, licensed Café/Bar capable of providing anything from tea and biscuits to a splendid buffet with waitress service. We can supply technical, box office, front of house and catering services for your event. Our rates are competitive.
