About this space

The Main Space is made up of the Staging Floor (1st floor), Lower Balcony (2nd floor), and Upper Balcony (3rd floor).

The space is suited to large-scale events including events to be held in-the-round. The balconies extend around all 4 sides. Windows provide natural light while drawn curtains deliver a black-out.

Triple glazing effectively eliminates break-in and break-out of sound. When configured in the round, with both balconies in use, this space will accommodate approximately 550 people.

About The Black-E

We offer the facilities of a modern building within a historic 19th Century exterior. The unique and spectacular Main Space is suited to film production, conferences, and high profile events (artistic and sporting). Adjoining spaces are suited to receptions, meetings, and private parties; to exhibitions, workshops, and rehearsals; and to performances on a chamber scale.

We are located on the edge of the city center, at the heart of Europe’s oldest Chinatown, and within walking distance of the shopping quarters and most of the City’s major institutions (cathedrals, universities, museums, galleries, theatres, concert halls). Road and rail access is excellent, and we are just 7 miles from John Lennon Airport.
