Universal Hall Auditorium
The Universal Hall auditorium has a thrust stage area (hand-laid beechwood) with audience bleacher seating on three sides. The seats can be removed to create an increased dance area or for conversion to a TV studio. Video and slide projection are available onto a permanent cinema-sized screen. A full theatre lighting system is controlled by a Strand 200 48 channel mixer with FX. The sound system is powered by an M1000 power amplifier and the power rating is approximately 450 watts per side. The system is suitable for playback of compact discs, iPod and similar audio sources. A dedicated radio microphone is available for use with this system. Should an event require a larger PA, a more powerful sound is available from Acorn Audio. Sound connections located throughout the auditorium can also be relayed via patch bay into the adjacent recording studio making the recording of live concerts possible.

Dance & Drama Studio
The dance and drama studio has a sprung floor, exercise bars on three walls and floor-to-ceiling mirrors on the fourth. Sound equipment, plus changing rooms with showers are also available and suitable for classes including contemporary and traditional dance, drama and yoga.  

Other facilities
Other facilities at the Universal Hall include a small music room, a recording studio a hot tub and a cafe.
