The Old Court Room at The Manor House provides a unique and intimate ambience for musical events. Musicians have commented at the clarity of the acoustics and the closeness of the audience giving immediate feedback and response. The acoustics are as suited to jazz and piano recitals as they are to folk or blues.
The Old Court Room can accommodate an audience of up to eighty seated café style and more seated theatre style. We are a licenced premises with full bar facilities and we can provide table service if needed.
We have our own quality PA system including mixing desk and quality speakers, mics and monitors but we equally happy for musicians to bring their own. We have a stage which can be laid to a number of options.
On the first floor we have a private space which is great for rehearsing and also as a green room during a gig.
All in all the facilities at this unique County Durham music venue make for a great and intimate gig which will be as memorable for musicians as the audience.
