Sherling Studio


The Sherling Studio is a recently refurbished studio theatre suitable for small-scale performances, rehearsals and talks.

Accessed on the ground floor, it is a semi thrust configuration with full lighting and sound. Bench seating on three sides provides audiences with unreserved seating in an intimate setting with lovely acoustics. Seating can be flexible according to the needs of the performance with the front two rows of section B and all of section C removable to increase the playing space.

The venue has capacity for up to six wheelchair users and has a full infra-red induction loop.

The Sherling Studio artistic programme is either created or enabled by Lighthouse or is selected carefully by our programming team, who choose the artists we collaborate with. The programme is predominantly drama, with minimal staging production, stand up comedy, children’s theatre or world, jazz and folk music – either amplified or acoustic.

The Sherling Studio is unavailable for private hire unless required as part of a building wide hire.
