Warwick Hall

Opened in September 2016, replacing The Guy Nelson Hall, providing a first-class space for a wide range of events. The auditorium seats up to 1000, with enhanced acoustics and audience comfort derived from a flexible telescopic raked seating system and permanent balcony. Two new drama/dance studios offer smaller venues for performances and workshops.

  • Increase the capacity to 1,000 seats by installing a gallery
  • Install adaptable seating to include loose seats and telescopic fixed seats
  • Improve the flexibility use of the space by creating a single ground level
  • Enhance the acoustics of the auditorium to provide a first-class space for concerts and spoken events
  • Add a large new foyer space around the auditorium, increasing the hall’s uses, including the possibility of exhibition space
  • Add a performing arts studio for rehearsals and performances, which will also support the provision of Drama teaching
  • Provide a comfortable and suitable environment for examinations
  • Expand the catering and caretaking facilities to allow a greater range of functions and events to take place
  • Create a space that will lift the aspirations of all of those who use it
