TAPAC Theatre

Our theatre is where your festivals and theatre, dance and circus shows come to life. Create and develop work here or stage your fully-fledged production. The TAPAC theatre is a flexible, easily accessible space. Our standard theatre configuration seats 127 patrons in tiered seating. If less stage space is required (e.g. for stand-up comedy), we can re-configure the space to seat up to 160. Our theatre can also be configured to a mix of cabaret tables and tiered seating.
