Venue Hire

Our new fully-accessible building and studios are now available for private hire.
Located just off the A127 at Rayleigh Weir the building is easy to get to as well as easy to get around.
The Studios are used regularly throughout the week by Mushroom Theatre Company and Little Theatre Company for classes, rehearsals, social activities and meetings. We also have a number of other regular bookings from Masters College, as well as zumba, pilates, line dancing and belly dancing groups through the week.  Essex Youth Services recently held training workshops for youth leaders, and the studios have also been hired out for parties.
