The Mechanics Auditorium

The jaw-dropping grandeur and size of our Auditorium – complete with large guilt pillars and impressive stage – is the perfect backdrop for all types of events. It offers a modern, flexible space which is easily converted from theatre to a banquet, catwalk runway to wedding venue, conference room to standing rock venue.

The Auditorium is Burnley’s largest permanent performance space with a standing capacity of 700 or seated in a traditional style the theatre capacity is 495.

The beauty of the Auditorium is that it can be transformed at the touch of a button from a traditional tiered theatre to an amazing blank canvas thanks to our electronic retractable seating. This flexibility means we can cater for literally any event from wedding receptions to festivals, trade shows – even roller discos!
