Theatre Style: 1700
Banqueting Style: 700
Cabaret Style: 624

A beautiful space for hosting in-the-round conferences, exhibitions, smart receptions, and gala dinners. Circular and pillar-free space, with no fixed seating or stage.

Contractor access is by 4.5m x 4.2m roller doors to the north and south of the venue.

One tonne rigging points around the dome of the hall give maximum potential for hanging lighting and other equipment and the floor can tolerate loads of 1,020kg per square metre.

A basic announcement PA is available, with additional portable systems available on request.


General lighting is by exhibition-grade, metal halide floodlights over the entire hall. Additional tungsten dimmers are available for other types of event. Stage lighting in the form of CP62 Parcans is controlled by a MA Lighting Dot2 desk using DMX control with 48 2000w dimmers, distributed over the central mother grid.


The Purbeck Hall is provided with a standard stage 9.75m x 4.87m (32ft x 16ft), which can be expanded for an extra charge to create a space 14.76m x 7.38m (48ft x 28ft).


Our technical team will work with you to build a bespoke, technical package to make sure your event runs to plan. We have a stock of equipment that we can use to create a full production package.

Operational Support

Our technical, stage and operations teams are here to complement your own and it’s important that they work together from the start — and that our team sees and signs off the final arrangements. Full plans and technical specifications are available as PDFs from your Event Coordinator. All rigging must be carried out by NRC certified staff.
