Performing Arts Centre

The Performing Arts Centre or PAC occupies an area behind the original stable block at the Abbey. An entirely stand-alone unit; the PAC features a small kitchen area or green room, and is a flexible space with a retractable partition that allows the hirer to extend the space considerably or keep it as two separate rooms. The floor is sprung so is perfect for dance camps. There is a lighting booth and several smaller breakout practice rooms, many of which contain musical instruments for you to use (please check with us for a current list). The performing space opens out on to a private enclosed lawn area accessible via French doors, which run the length of the side of the building. The PAC represents a truly flexible and private space to run any course, camp, workshop or similar.

By prior arrangement, access can also be given to our adjacent music pods. The four Pods, installed in Spring 2021, are entirely modular, self-contained, and designed and manufactured locally in Battle. Featuring acoustically absorbent upholstered walls and ceilings they offer a sound transmission reduction of more than 51dBA. Great for break out musical sessions or indeed primal scream therapy!
