Following extensive refits, St Mary’s boasts a comprehensive technical specification including sound, visual and lighting systems and dedicated super-fast 100mbps fibre internet.

Should you wish to take advantage of our excellent in-house systems please contact our venue manager to find out more about booking one of our professional technicians. We offer sound engineers and audio visual and lighting technicians who will work with you to achieve your desired results.

The Great Hall includes a high quality, top line d&b speaker system packing over 10kW of amplification power. Combined with a Midas mixing console capable of 32 input channels (including wireless microphones), the sound system is capable and flexible enough to cover all of your event’s specifications.

Our full HD visual system is equally highly specified: a retractable 4m wide projection screen is suspended above the stage with four LED displays fitted to ensure maximum visibility throughout. Comfort monitors are installed for presenters on the stage, with the flexibility for presenters to plug in tablets or laptops on the stage or within the control booth. Distribution to some Undercroft areas is also provided for extra convenience.

A fully controllable, colour-selectable LED lighting system covers the stage, ceiling and downlights. A two-universe DMX control system allows expansion of the system to create special effects for each client’s individual need. Touring grade spotlights illuminate the stage, and professional fixtures cover the whole space, creating tailored effects and moods from bright brilliant whites to intense, colour-filled atmospheres.
