The venue has a number of possible configurations where seating capacities vary from 177 to 245. The stalls bleacher-seating unit can also be fully retracted providing a clear floor area of approximately 135 sqm, ideal for larger scale gatherings, conference and exhibition.

Each of the rehearsal studios has large windows and high ceilings and can accommodate between 30 and 80 people. The Drama Studio is served by excellent transport links and the new 500-space Durham Road multi-storey car park.
