The Cliff Lyons Hall

Our main hall provides a great deal of flexibility. We have retractable seating that can seat 120 people. We also have a projector and sound and lighting system. This will allow us to run film, music or theatre nights. If the retractable seating is not in use, the hall can be set up with round and rectangular tables to accommodate party nights with a maximum of 90 people seated (60 if space for dancing and disco/band required.  


  • Retractable Seating - As above. Seats 120. 
  • Projector - We have a ceiling mounted high specification projector provides cinema size and quality images. Wall mounted sockets are located beside the sound desks (shown in the picture) making setting up the equipment very simple. We have a blue ray DVD player available for use, but your own laptop can also be connected should you prefer. Where only an HDMI socket is available on your player, we have a connector to enable the sound to be played through the speaker system in the hall.
  • Lighting - The hall has a pair of lighting bars paired with an industry standard lighting deck, complete with memory facility. This means you can rehearse your lighting, record it and then play it back at the flick of a switch. So producing complex and impressive effects is easy.
  • Sound System - The sound system can be used by plugging in your mobile phone, laptop or any other device. There is a sophisticated sound deck to arrange the sound to your preference. All connections are straightforward, being easy and quick to assemble. While the sound in the hall is fine on most occasions, we are looking into ways to improve that.
  • Microphones - We have both free standing and radio microphones of high quality to link into the system via the sound deck.

We have a dedicated team of sound engineers who can help set up your event should you need help.
