Our venue is a wonderful church building in the heart of south County Durham. It has been a central resource for communities for over 100 years…and it’s still going strong. The original purpose of the building was to “undertake religious training of young people”. It is now a more secular building, but it retains its training purpose for our students. The building is made up of:

  • Reception Hall
  • 120 seat main hall with stage
  • Drama Space 1
  • Drama Space 2
  • Music Studio
  • Male and female toilets
  • Kitchen

The Enter Centre is a production venue hosting professional theatre as part of the Take Off Festival of Children’s Theatre and is a receiving venue for professional theatre in its own right. For a copy of our venue technical pack for theatre companies, please contact us.

The venue is also a perfect place to hold meetings, coffee mornings, rehearsals, weddings, art exhibitions, wine tasting, conferences, awards ceremonies, corporate away-days, birthday parties, reunions and family gatherings. There is also a large, outdoor area with grass and benched tables. You can book any or all of the spaces (toilets are included with any hire!) by submitting a booking request.

Whatever you want to do in our venue, you will find it an inspirational place to work, play and meet.
