The Mick Jagger Centre is a multi use performing arts centre comprising two main performance spaces, a spacious foyer bar, drama studio and ancillary meeting/dressing rooms.
J9 - The Big Room
The Big Room is a very flexible working area, adaptable to various formats.
It is designed as essentially a blank canvas, well suited to live music of all genres, dance and drama. The room offers a flexible acoustic as well as visual aspect, with installed curtains designed by Petra Blaize of Inside Outside.
The performance area is flat floor, although a raised stage can be achieved in one of two ways. Either through construction of steel deck platforms to 1ft, 2ft or 3ft height, or by use of pit seating, which is below floor level, giving the appearance of a raised stage. Both options would depend upon the nature of the event being held.
Seating is raked with motorised control to remove when necessary, leaving extra space for standing events. Capacity is set at 296 without the pit, 350 including the pit, or 600 standing. There is ample provision for wheelchair access, and lift access to the balcony seats.
J3 - The Small room
The Small Room offers a more intimate performance space ideally suited to drama productions, recitals and lectures. With installed drapes and tabs, the stage area is a sprung flat floor with a definite theatre feel. Seating again is raked and motorised for easy storage. Capacity is set at 150 seated, with lift access to the balcony and wheelchair access.
A comprehensive equipment list to cater for all events is as follows:
