Hire The Unicorn

The Unicorn Theatre is a contemporary, unusual and atmospheric space that is ideal for conferences, seminars and large scale meetings. 


We have two theatres that can be hired and can also provide additional rooms for breakout spaces alongside the event. The Weston Theatre has 250 seats and our more intimate Clore Theatre can seat up to a 100 people.

Included in the hire package is use of our light and airy foyer space for registration, receptions and catering. We are happy to work with you to organise catering and we are fully licensed for late night refreshments and have an alcohol premises license.

To register your interest in hiring our theatre spaces, please complete the enquiry form below and return it to hires@unicorntheatre.com and we will happily provide a competitive quote that includes staffing for the event. Please note, that due to the high level of demand we are unable to process bookings without an enquiry form.

We are also happy to provide viewings of our spaces which can be arranged by appointment by emailing the address above.

Once we have received your booking form it will take up to five working days to respond to your initial enquiry. Our theatre spaces are subject to availability and dependent on our current productions but should we have availability we will be able to offer you a date and draw up a draft quote.

Large scale events need sufficient lead in time; we need to have agreed the contract and terms of the event 12 weeks ahead of the event date.
