Covering over 2000m², The Space provides an environment suited to both professionals and students with its four unique audience spaces.
The Pamoja Hall
This superb raked auditorium seats 410. The stage accommodates an 80-piece orchestra and also offers motorised retractable raked choir stalls for a hundred-strong choir.
Boasting a world-class acoustic which can be adjusted to suit different musical genres or speech, the Pamoja Hall is equipped with AV and a drop-down screen suitable for film and lectures. It is naturally ventilated and lit, and is cooled using ground water pumped from below the building. With a beautiful timber roof structure of Douglas Fir, the hall provides a large acoustic volume while maintaining an intimate atmosphere.
The Recital Room
Seating up to one hundred, the Recital Room is a flexible space for more intimate arts performances, seminars and presentations. It has an excellent acoustic, ideal for chamber music, song recital and solo instruments.
With captivating views of the school grounds through ceiling-height windows, and easy access to the lower foyer and bar terrace, the Recital Room is a great space for social functions. It also offers a live feed from the Pamoja Hall and can be used as an overspill area for latecomers or additional numbers.
The Sackville Theatre
Also a flexible space, with a wide range of different staging and seating configurations available. The seating capacity is up to 230 depending on stage configuration. There are two dressing rooms, toilets and disabled facilities, including a lift.
The theatre is available for one-off commercial hires such as theatre projects, conferences and training events.
The Ordovsky-Tanaevsky Drama Studio
A smaller flexible space seating up to 100. It provides an informal studio setting fully equipped with sound and lighting support, suitable for smaller/workshop theatre and as a rehearsal space. There is one dressing room with shower, toilet and disabled facilities.
The Space offers 15 spacious individual practice rooms, each with a piano, a multi-use teaching space, a Sibelius computing suite, and a fully-equipped Recording Studio.
A generous Lower Foyer space, opening onto a terrace, looking towards Knole Park with bar facilities and seating allows for very pleasant pre-theatre/concert socialising and interval refreshment. This public piazza also offers a relaxed social space for clients using the Recital Room for seminars, conferences and small business functions.
