Allen Hall is home to Theatre Studies and is a fully functioning theatre that doubles as a teaching space, which means that you will be working in an environment that is actively performance-oriented.
Allen Hall is a real hands-on operation, where you may find yourself selling tickets at the box office one day, acting the next, then perhaps rigging and operating lights or sound.
Performances occur regularly, thanks to our Lunchtime Theatre programme every Thursday and Friday during the teaching year. We also host occasional visiting productions and plays staged by staff and students.
Allen Hall is in the beautiful bluestone buildings of the old university complex (the building was the student union until 1974), next to Marama Hall, which is the Music Department’s performance venue.
