The Bloomsbury Studio is a Black Box space with 70 seat capacity (with no social distancing) and private bar.
It is a multi-use, black box studio space suitable for all forms of production. There is a triple-E curtain track around the perimeter of the space (excluding the control position) with full length black serge masking. There is a permanent raised control position accessed by a fixed ladder. The SR wall (when working ‘end on’) has full length mirrors, allowing for dance rehearsals.
It is a roughly rectangular space, approximately 10000mm by 8000mm wall to wall. The serge masking reduces the usable floor space. The available playing space varies depending on seating configurations, generally permitting a 6000mm by 4500mm playing space without reducing capacity. Maximum usable height (floor to lighting grid) is 3200mm
The studio has an Upright Piano, the tuning of which will involve additional costs, please speak to a member of the theatre team about this before your arrival
