John Cooper Studio@41 Monkgate

This is a unique theatre space for all types of performance and larger rehearsals.  The standard seating configuration is end-on. However, the staging blocks which create the raised seating area are not fixed, and the theatre is ideal for use in a variety of configurations.


The space measures 10.51m x 15.72m. The maximum seating capacity when the audience is end-on is 100. The maximum capacity of the Studio Theatre, for fire regulation purposes, is 130 (including performers, backstage crew and technical operators, etc). There is a balcony area which may be used during performances.

Hire includes use of our lighting rig.

Our pricing structure remains very competitive, but most of all we just want to support performance returning to York, so do talk to us if you have an idea but are unsure about hire costs - we can tailor a contract to suit your needs. Get in touch!
