Main Hall Stage

Main Stage – Permanent

The Main Stage has the data projector back screen and data projector, so if using these two pieces of equipment the Main Stage will be out of bounds as there is little to no room for any other items on there.

If no equipment is needed then the stage dimensions are: 4.60m  x 2.48m and height 0.87m

Lower Stage 

The lower stage is attached to the main stage and can be rolled out to use or rolled back under the main stage. It’s suitable if having panel discussions and such activities. If someone is presenting something on the screen while standing on the lower stage, they may slightly obstruct viewers from seeing the whole screen with their shadow.

the lower stage dimensions are: 4.00m  x 1.90m and height 0.36m
