Pavilion Arts Centre
The Pavilion Arts Centre
The Pavilion Arts Centre blends historical features with state of the art facilities to provide a unique multi-purpose exhibition, presentation, function and theatre space.
Newly launched in September 2012 after a comprehensive refurbishment, the facility offers a prestigious environment to host all types of events. Originally opened as The Entertainment Stage in 1889, and latterly known as the Paxton Suite, the renovations have painstakingly retained many of the early Victorian features complemented by a new contemporary design.
The main room has 360 seats (comprising of 78 moveable, 140 retractable each with a writing tablet and 142 balcony) and the Studio Theatre has 93 seats (of which 58 are retractable). With large open floor areas, the venue can accommodate a variety of activities and events including lecture style presentations, exhibitions, meetings, conferences, social events, weddings and functions.
