We take our sound seriously.
The first thing you’ll notice about Faith In Strangers is the amazing views, the second might be how good the venue sounds. Architecturally designed with acoustic panelling and angled walls has created a sonically sound housing for the high end audio systems.
The venue hosts a unique multi-channel array set up of Funktion One speakers. 24 of them are placed around the venue which creates the opportunity to make spatial sound scapes along with separate individual outputs, evoking a sense of theatre that immerses the audience from entering the building.
What does this mean? — You’ll be able to greet your guests with pre-recorded audio content in all the different zones as you please, as your guests enter the venue, walking through the hallway, up the stairs, in the restroom and in the different areas of the main space too. Perfect for a brand launch or to intro the evening and continually engage over the course of the event.
We also have the high-fidelity audiophile Klipsch Cornwall speakers running through Icon Audio valve preamps and Dual Quad QSP power amps which create one of the most beautiful sounding set ups available, for the perfect highest of quality background music, though they can also go loud if needed!
Can I decorate?
Depending on the decoration, we may charge extra if it requires extra cleaning. We don't allow anything that damages our interior such as blue tac or tape. We prefer to avoid the use of glitter.
Can I or my mate DJ?
Only on a full private hire. There will be costs assocaited with renting the DJ equipment as well as security deposits.
Can we bring our own food/drink?
Generally speaking no but there are some exceptions (corkage on fine wine for instance), please contact us outlining your needs.
We have a fully fitted high-spec kitchen and can tailor a menu to your requirements.
