The d.@rt Centre is home to a variety of music rehearsal spaces, with something for musical projects of all shapes and sizes.
Our three small practice rooms are the perfect size for solo practice or small ensembles. One of these is equipped with an acoustic drum kit, making this an ideal space for drummers looking for an affordable way to practice on a proper kit without worrying about the neighbors. These rooms are also perfect for private tutors looking for a professional space to run lessons from.
There are also two larger music classrooms which can house bigger (and louder) ensembles. One room is fully equipped with PA and drum kit, and is suitable for amplified bands. This room has guitar and bass amps provided, but you are also welcome to bring along your own. Our second larger studio is home to a number of brass bands and choirs, and is a great space for larger groups of acoustic instruments. For more information about the music facilities on offer please contact Jon Prince at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 01489 779471.
Dance and Drama Spaces
Our specialist dance studio, with sprung floor and large mirrored wall is the perfect space to hold dance classes, or just to hire by the hour for some personal practice. An in-built PA system means you will have no trouble playing music from a phone, Ipod or CD. This studio is suitable for dancers wearing appropriate non heeled shoes, such as street dance and ballet.
We also have two Auditoriums available for hire, which have a cushioned floor making them suitable for tap dance, and Irish dancing. These spaces are also equipped with a PA system, and have adjustable lighting making them a versatile drama space and studio theatre. These rooms can also be hired on an hourly basis to run classes or for private use.
The Wildern Hall is also hireable for anyone wanting a large venue to stage a rehearsal or performance. There is a raised stage, seating for 300 people, a fixed sound and lighting desk and a comprehensive lighting rig.
Any performances in the hall or studio theatre can have technical support if arranged in advance and this will be discussed with you when booking.
Class Rooms and Meeting Rooms
There are a number of classrooms available for hire around the school site, and we regularly welcome evening and weekend classes into these spaces. Rooms can have smart boards, projectors and seating for around 30 students.
Our meeting rooms are the perfect venue for corporate meetings, with flexible seating arrangements, screens and projector connectivity and speaker set up. Meeting room spaces can take from 12 to 90 people.
