The Wulfrun Hall has a seating capacity of 700 with walls covered with acoustic boards, and red ceiling beams and door panels.

 

 

 

 

On each side of the proscenium opening are murals depicting the civic and social life of the town. They were produced by Muriel Gilbert, a young artist who was responsible for many of the paintings on the R.M.S. Queen Mary.

Both halls are equipped with cinema projectors, naturally sprung dance floors, and a public address system. There is ample accommodation for visiting artists on the upper floors and under the stage of the Wulfrun Hall.

There is a large, well-equipped kitchen which can supply anything from light refreshments to a banquet for 500.

There is a fully backed-up air-conditioning plant for both halls with viscous oil filters to purify, wash, and heat the air as required.

Great consideration was given to the acoustics in both halls. One of the leading experts in the field, Mr. Hope Bagenal, A.R.I.B.A. advised on the installation.

He was the first musician to play in the new building.
