The Shakespeare Centre

The Shakespeare Centre in Kendal is a converted theatre that dates back to  1829. Fully renovated in 1995, it now provides the town with an excellent meeting place. Retaining many of its original features the building has been attractively upgraded to modern standards and includes full access and facilities for the disabled.


The King's Room

The King’s Room is our largest room available to hire. It can seat up to 120 people in a conference style arrangement, however the space is very versatile and is regularly used for a number of different events and programmes.

The facilities available to those wishing to hire the King’s room are very accommodating; boasting a purpose built PA system, induction loop, HD projection, flip charts, whiteboards, lectern etc. For whatever you wish to use the room, we can help to facilitate your vision.
