Events, Functions & Conferences
The Ashburton Trust Event Centre can cater for up to 500 people in the purpose built O’Reilly Auditorium. But smaller, more intimate gatherings can also be hosted. Scroll through our options below and view our short video on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iw3DxN-pj98 :
The Green Room is suited to the smaller meeting or performance class with a capacity of 50 people. It has free flowing foyer areas and bar facilities available.
Access to the Green Room is via the car park entry with stair access only. It is a light, bright room with little or no noise to disturb you. Accompanied by its own kitchen facilities, tables and chairs, this room is also suitable for use as a dance studio with sprung flooring.
Guardian Gallery/Woodham Foyer
The Guardian Gallery and Woodham Foyer are suitable for mixing and mingling pre show. They also lend themselves to trade displays and wine and cheese evenings complete with background music from the grand piano. Entry to these areas is via the rear car park or from the main entry off Wills Street. The combined foyers allow for the easy movement of people to and from the auditorium entries and are a great place for groups to gather pre show or have a quiet drink at the Fort Bar. Tickets can be collected from the ticket office next to the bar.
