Tramway hosts a wide range of performance, visual arts and education events and we are proud to be hosting  the 2015 Turner Prize. Tramway’s versatile spaces can be used by private and corporate clients as an edgy venue ‘with a difference’. Tramway is an ideal space for performances, exhibitions, private viewings, seminars, meetings and smaller scale functions.

Tramway 1 is usually associated with large scale performing arts projects. It is a flexible space capable of meeting the needs of the most demanding projects and ambitious ideas. It has a standard capacity of 600 seats of which 378 are flexible and can be set in a variety of configurations. The remaining 222 seats form a fixed balcony overlooking the main performing area.

Tramway 2 is the principal exhibition space and one of the largest single galleries in Europe. The original tramlines, steel pillars and the sheer scale of this space make it one of the most impressive visual arts spaces in Europe.

Tramway 4 is a studio theatre with flexible seating for up to 90 people. Tramway 5 is an exhibition space that can accommodate up to 60 people.

The Studio offers a more traditional setting and is suitable for smaller board meetings, presentations and talks for between 4 and 40 people.

The Café is a spacious, relaxing environment offering fresh, organic produce during the day and an evening bar during performance nights. Immediately adjacent to the cafe is the Mezzanine area which offers an informal meeting space which can be used as breakout  for up to 40 people.

This venue is suitable for:

  • Awards Ceremonies
  • Community Events
  • Standing Receptions
