Stage & Equipment
The removable staging consists of 16 1.22m x 1.22m units which when bolted together form a strong, solid performance area. They can be configured in various lay-outs, for example the basic stage can be 6 units wide by 2 units deep (7.32m x 2.44m); a block of 4 units by 4 units will give a performance area of 4.88m x 4.88m; or even a catwalk style run of units can take performers into the audience arena. The stage is 68cm high off the main hall floor level and there are 2 flights of steps that can be positioned along any side of the stage.

Stage lights are mounted on a gantry in front of the stage with a further 2 over the stage itself. The lighting control panel is equipped with wander leads and can be operated from a variety of locations.
The PA System is rack mounted at the back of the hall. It can play audio CDs or cassette tapes and incorporates a broadcast radio tuner as well as a roving radio microphone system with both handheld and lapel microphones. An audio loop covers the entire area of the Main Hall.
A 3.75m wide pull down screen mounted just behind the front stage curtain is ideal for the display of wide screen videos as well as slides and other presentation material.
Skittles and the equipment for 2 alleys are stored in the Main Hall. Removable covers at the front of the stage area conceal the skittle pit.
