The Alistair Conquer Studio

About this room

The Alistair Conquer Studio is a versatile space which can be used as a theatre, but is also available for seminars, training sessions and meetings, as well as being suitable for dance, drama rehearsals and workshops. 

The studio is situated on the ground floor of the 'Ropewalk' building at The College Street Centre. Access ramps are in place; they are well lit during hours of darkness.

There is a recently-refurbished accessible toilet, with baby-changing facilities, adjacent to the Studio.


The Studio has comfortable retractable seating for 66 people, but other styles of seating are available, such as cabaret or boardroom, if required. Please discuss your preferred seating arrangements at the time of booking.

When retractable seating is set out, a floor area of approximately 9m x 6m is available. When the seating is closed, the room measures 14m x 6.45m. There is a fixed data projector and screen within the Studio, together with a sound system.

The Studio can be presented as a dark space but there are large windows that can provide daylight if that is preferred.

The Alistair Conquer Studio is ideal for small-scale drama productions, presentations, performances and recitals.

For an additional fee our Theatre Technicians can provide technical support if needed (subject to availability).
