About

The Oratory is one of the Convent’s most spectacular spaces. Featuring polished floorboards, distressed walls, leadlight windows, a raised stage, single track dimmer lighting and a green room, this beautiful hall is perfect for a variety of performances, rehearsals, and installations. The Oratory opens onto the Sacred Heart Courtyard and offers views of the Convent gardens.

The Oratory was once a daytime Chapel for the women who lived in the Sacred Heart building. Refurbished in 2014, the Oratory now offers a creative multi-use space that is both majestic and worn.

Facilities

The space includes a green room equipped with a kitchen sink, fridge, and kettle. Additional facilities including tables, chairs, whiteboards, heaters, and fans are available to hirers. Basic AV equipment is available to hirers.
