It benefits from an integrated professional sound-system, theatre style lighting and uplighting, audio recording facilities, an HD projector and powerpoint clicker. Other amenities include a small kitchen equipped with an oven, fridge, instant hot water, and basic cutlery and crockery. 90 chairs are available as well as up to 6 buffet-style tables, or the space may be left as is for you to craft as you wish!
