The Old Labs can be used as a meeting room but is mainly used for the performing arts including concerts. It occupies a charming building in the grounds, whose first purpose was as a chemical laboratory. In addition to the main auditorium with grand piano and sound and lighting facilities, including front projection for video and Powerpoint, there is another practice room with a harpsichord and second grand piano, and a green room. In the lobby is a display of the building’s history which invariably attracts the attention of visitors.
