SU Venue

The SU Venue is a multi-purpose space suitable for hosting live music events, theatrical productions, performances, large events, and production rehearsals. Beyond the stage, it transforms seamlessly into an ideal setting for conferences, meetings, awards ceremonies, fairs, and various other functions. The Venue is available for exclusive use, with the option of access to the Tommy’s Bar (subject to trading hours). With a state-of the- art motorised truss system, the venue can be fully customised to the needs of the client, both technically and decoratively. The external surrounding plaza provides an outdoor space with a bar, also available for private hire as part of the package.


1440 whole venue. Auditorium alone up to 800 standing / 200 seated. Dining up to 150 seated


Medicine is a separate venue on campus to the SU Venue, and is available for parties, theatre productions, shows, performance rehearsals, conference meetings, awards ceremonies, and many other events.

Medicine’s Bar is a 650-capacity venue with a rustic/ industrial feel offering a vibrant and colourful space for any occasion. The room comes with an island bar, two raised break-out areas and a big open rectangular space that can be transformed anywhere between a dancefloor, raised stage, theatre, or conference room.

The Terrace and Beer Garden are two separate areas that come as part of the Medicine package. These outdoor spaces seamlessly extend from the main building, creating a vibrant festival atmosphere beneath charming stretch tents surrounded by woodland.
