Performance Centre

Performance Centre

Located in the former diesel shed of the old Roundhouse, the Performance Centre retains its original brickwork, picture windows, and large train doors, providing the space with charm, warmth and character. The removable seating and accessible windows with retractable blackout blinds make this space ideal for diverse events, from dance and music performances, meetings and lectures to weddings, receptions and full-scale theatre.

While the room can be configured to meet the needs of your event, the space also has a default set-up that is ready to use. This configuration has bleacher seating, a stage area at floor level, and is equipped with a lighting and sound system.

  • The room is approximately 5500 ft2.
  • There is a fixed grid over the central floor area of the room at a height of 22’ 9”.
  • The roof is 32’ high.
  • A 7’ wide catwalk runs the entire perimeter of the space at a height of 16’.
  • A traveler drape hangs from the inside edge of the catwalk.
  • A portion of the Exhibition Hall adjacent to the Performance Centre is partitioned as a designated lobby area.
