Venue

Bring­ing artists and audi­ences togeth­er in a live broad­cast envi­ron­ment, where mem­o­ries and moments can be shared and broad­cast in dig­i­tal realities.

We’ve con­jured up a unique blend of sound and light for audi­ences of up to 350 peo­ple to enjoy in the venue; using sets’ with­in the venue to stream live to a glob­al audi­ence of up to 7.6bn. Next up, we’ll be exper­i­ment­ing with future tech to push the bound­aries of what a venue can be. We’ll main­ly be keep­ing things local whilst the effects of the pan­dem­ic reduce, then we’ll be bring­ing artists and tal­ents nation­al and inter­na­tion­al to the venue for local enjoyment.

The per­fect venue for large gath­er­ings, book your birth­day or spe­cial event via pri­vate hire or groups up to 16 can book through the reser­va­tions link.

Audio & Acoustics

The venue hosts a unique multichannel array set up of Funktion One speakers with Full Fat Audio amps. 18 speakers, each with DSP control are placed around the venue which creates the opportunity to make spatial sound scapes along with seperate individual outputs, evoking a sense of theatre that immerses the audience from entering the building. Our exploration of high fidelity sound is ongoing; currently we are using Klipsch Cornwalls powered by Icon Audio and Bryston amps. The venue has been clad in acoustic treatments and angular surfaces, to reduce the effects of standing waves and reflection.

Lighting & Art

Bespoke dynamic light & art installations have been built into the structure of the building to create an ever changing immersive experience. Each LED can be programmed individually, reacting to various data sources such as audio, sensors and in development, AI.

Future technologies

Faith In Strangers will continue to explore and celebrate future technologies and science. Experimentation in the realms of AI, XR (Extended Reality), audience interaction, immersion and sensors.

The venue is built with the future of art and inter­ac­tiv­i­ty in mind. In prac­ti­cal terms this trans­lates in unique­ly designed instal­la­tions that can be con­trolled by artists and the audi­ence. Our aim is to blur the lines between real­i­ties, live and vir­tu­al, with­in the venue. If this sort of thing floats your boat and you want to get involved or you want a full venue spec­i­fi­ca­tion sheet con­tact us.
