"The newly refurbished Thorngate Ballroom offering superb cuisine and fully licensed bars is the ideal venue for the formal dinner dance, wedding, private party, concert etc.. Accommodating up to 250 in a formal setting, the number increases to 300 for an informal dance or 350 in concert style. The well-equipped and capacious stage can accmmodate the largest of dance bands or disco whilst the new sprung floor is without doubt the finest dancefloor in the area.
The Thorngate Theatre is an asset beyond measure. Licensed to seat 238 in concert style, the theatre is equipped to fulfil even the most demanding Company in their production of drama, comedy or musical performances. Complete with stage lighting, orchestra pit, dressing rooms and cavernous stage, the facilities are such that even John Barrymore or Sir Henry Irving would be at home on the boards. With its licensed bar as requisite, the theatre will comfortably hold up to 150 persons for private parties and weddings.
The ballroom does not allow self catering however we offer a choice of 4 contract caterers with a great range of menus. The Theatre and Georgian Suit allow for self-catering but no professional catering (no kitchen available)."

No sound limiter
No useable in-house lighting effects
No air conditioning
No specific dancefloor area
No stage area
PARKING: There's a large Car Park round the back of the Venue, which may benefit you dependent on where you're booked to perform within the venue.
ACCESS: I was in the Music Room for this booking. Single Door access from the front of the venue (adjacent to the Main Entrance). Probably be prepared for a 10m walk from your vehicle to the entrance of the room.
FACILITIES: I set up in the corner for this gig, as there were two 13A Sockets to plug into. White ceiling so and walls so its great to Mood Light behind your Set Up area. Comfortable fitted a 4FT Desk and Overhead Bar with two Speakers on Stands either side without an issue, and that was sufficient to fill the room.
STAFF: Staff were great, friendly and approachable.
POWER PROVISION: Not sure
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: "Two 13A Sockets behind the DJ Set Up area. Music Room required a Small Set Up. Didn't pick up any Wi-Fi Hotspots unfortunately."
