The John Clare Theatre is a comfortable theatre that has 144 seats and 2 wheelchair spaces plus a stage.

It is located within the Central Library Building and adjoins the LP Hartley room making the two rooms ideal for presentations and meetings combined

The LP Hartley room is a meeting room that can be booked separately or with the John Clare Theatre and has the following capacity:
22 people boardroom style.
35 people theatre style.
20 people in horseshoe style.

Eating and drinking is not permitted in the John Clare Theatre but is permitted in the LP Hartley room and cups, saucers, teaspoons and plates can be provided on request.

The rooms are situated on the first floor and disabled access is available via a lift. There is also disabled parking next to the building and several pay and display car parks are within walking distance.

We also have the Zone meeting room which is accessible from the Reference Library on the first floor. This has the same capacity as the L P Hartley Room, but without a kitchen area, so a kettle, plastic cups and cup holders can be provided for your refreshments.
