Opened in 2014, the Armitage Centre includes an impressive outdoor forecourt, relaxing foyers housing Hutchie's Bar, St Baker's Foyer and Geoffrey Rush Room upstairs. Within the unique flexible auditorium is state of the art technical equipment and facilities including fully retractable rows of tiered seating that can be easily stowed away to provide 400m2 of open space.

A true blank canvas, the Armitage Centre can be anything you want it to be, from a stunningly lit wedding reception venue, through to open plan conference or elaborate theatre experience.
