New Event Space At Former Odeon

The old Odeon is becoming a new events space with capacity for 540 people.

The Freedom Church bought the building on Bath Street eleven years ago and has refurbished it.

It now wants to rent it out as an events venue to raise money for the church.

Central to those plans has been securing an alcohol licence, so drinks and nibbles can be served to attendees.

Diane Wheeler, centre manager, has been telling Channel 103 about the plans:

"Over the last few years we have rented out some of the spaces we have to various organisations and part of the want they have required is to serve wine or beer with canapes or other food offerings - so we thought now is the right time to offer that.

We have gone from a 175 seater auditorium and we have now been given occupancy figures of what would be 540 people within the auditorium- so that is quite a decent sized venue.

We have had some enquiries about staff Christmas dinners.  It is not a nightclub. It has not been done out like that, so at the moment we are not looking to hold that kind of event, but we are looking at corporates who might want to hold a function there."
