The Venue

Building Specs

Audience capacity is 110 fully seated across two levels. Roughly 60 at ground level and the remainder around three sides of a balcony level. The building is a Grade II* listed chapel with the original pews. Downstairs the pews have been upgraded with substantial padding for a more modern comfort level.

A standing counter in the entrance area is where audience are greeted and checked in for events.
The bar is on the ground floor level with a range of beers from local brewery, Stonehouse, and from Welsh craft beers wholesaler Stori. A selection of wines, gins, whisky, vodka, teas, coffees, soft drinks, and mixers are also available.

 

Stage is raised 400mm providing a good view for the audience on both ground and upper levels. Area of stage viewable from all levels is 5m wide by 2.5 - 3m deep with a raised pulpit to the back of the main stage providing another useful area for backing singers, DJs. Or utilised for plays as a feature. To the side of the stage there is a 5m x 2m area  beneath the balcony level that can serve as wings or as additional stage area with restricted view from upper level.

Sound Built In Equipment

It has a quad output graphics card which can feed video anywhere in the building. The second PC is tower, also a Quad core intel i7 serving mostly as lighting controller with a 22 inch touch screen and running QLC+. It also serves for simple AV playback.
