The Studio

The Studio is an independent building situated behind the Athenaeum and offers a light and airy space ideal for children’s activities, classes, rehearsals, and parties. It has its own entrance off The Close, small reception, changing/waiting area, toilets and sink facilities. The main hall area has a mirrored wall, large windows, and lino flooring.
Although The Studio is on the ground floor access for wheelchairs is currently difficult due to a step.

Booking The Studio is by special arrangement, as permanent residents, Centre Stage Dance School, and other hirers, have priority of occupation at certain hours.
