Putting on an event at The Meteor is a collaboration. We co-operate with you on administration, marketing, publicity and production and offer technical assistance for your production. The Meteor generally runs ticketing, front-of-house operations and the Café. We hold a liquor licence and always operate any alcohol sales.
There is high demand for the use of The Meteor. We try to schedule as many different events as we are able to. There may be more than one event on at a given day or time.
If sharing the space, we rely on your goodwill and our combined pre-planning to ensure a happy and workable arrangement.
The Black Box
The Meteor is a black box theatre. It’s approximately 21m x 17m x 5m in size.
There is no fixed arrangement of stage or seating. The space is completely flexible and can be configured in a variety of ways.
The Meteor has movable seating blocks. Each block can be used individually or in groups. In its standard theatre configuration, we have the in-house capacity for 114 seats, which includes two ground-level rows. We can create smaller audience capacity according to your needs.
We also have a separate seating block that can be implemented to increase your seating capacity to 170. However, the implementation of this seating block will incur an additional charge.
If you want to increase your seating beyond that, then run your ideas past us! Bear in mind, extra seating may have an associated cost.
We also have 8 large round tables that can be used to create a cabaret style configuration.
For music / band performances / gigs The Meteor is licensed for a standing capacity of 350.
