Library Theatre Hire Fees Consultation

Closed 16 Feb 2023

Opened 3 Feb 2023


We are consulting about the proposed increase to Library Theatre hire fees. These were last increased in 2014, and since this time inflation has increased by 29%.

We are proposing to increase average weekly hire fees by 23% to meet the increased costs needed to operate the Theatre and undertake repairs and replacements of technical equipment. A scale of charges for different booking sessions is attached.

This would change the average weekly rate, including average loading and rehearsal times from £1788 to £2199. We will continue to offer the options of daily hire (as set out in the Scale of Charges).

We are seeking your views on the impact of these changes and any impact on your customers.
