Magnusson Centre

Our Centre for the Performing Arts was named for one of our well-known alumnus, Magnus Magnusson KBE. Though a modern, purpose-built performing space with fully retractable seating, its high ceilings, window-lined walls and sympathetic design mean it fits seamlessly alongside its neighbouring period buildings.

The Centre has hosted Fringe performances, plays, receptions and comedy nights. Ideal for hosting anything from dance recitals to theatre performances, it is a great self-contained event space for conferences, parties and award presentations.


  • 240 Max Capacity
  • Retractable tiered seating to seat 200 people.
  • 10m x 15m stage, plus 30 sections of stage deck available in-house.
  • Full theatre PA system with central desk and front of house control.
  • Full truss and rig and large stock of conventional and LED lights
  • Truss mounted projector, large retractable projector screen and integrated smart podium with mic and presenter screen.
