The Colyer-Fergusson Music Building at the University of Kent enhances the possibilities of the extra-curricular musical provision at the University, with a purpose-built, flexible performance space that can accommodate a wide range of musical activities accessible to both University members and the local community, as well as musicians and arts organisations beyond Kent. With adjustable acoustics and retractable seating able to accommodate everything from intimate chamber recitals to large-scale choral and orchestral concerts, the hall will be able to offer, when functioning at full concert capacity, seating for around 400 audience, 200-strong chorus, and (up to) an 80-piece orchestra. As a flat-floor space, the hall can accommodate up to six hundred audience / performers combined.
Free parking is available to Gulbenkian customers after 5pm on weekdays and all day at weekends in any University car park. Please refer to the Gulbenkian website below for further details:
