The building offers outstanding acoustics, perfect for conferences and presentations, and amazing light, thanks to the structure of the building and its beautiful, large windows. Hire of the building gives you exclusive use during the day or evening.

There are two event spaces available for hire within the Old Chapel: the Main Auditorium and the Kelly Room.

The flexible, spacious and versatile Main Auditorium is suitable for up to 116 people, and with plenty of tables and seating you can use the space to fit your requirements. It can seat 100 in rows with additional seating in the gallery/bar or, when arranged in working groups around tables it will accommodate groups from 15 up to 70 people.

The Kelly Room is a smaller space, perfect for more intimate meetings, presentations and events. It can seat up to 50 people.

“We ran a seminar with a range of delegates from across Europe in the Calstock Arts building. The proximity to the railway station made it incredibly easy to access and our delegates could enjoy a journey out from Plymouth through the beautiful Tamar Valley. We used a local caterer for the food which was excellent and combined with the beautiful setting, excellent facilities and helpful staff, the day was incredibly successful.”

“One of the most beautiful arts centres in the land, set in a converted chapel on the banks of the Tamar river. A quiet (or loud, if it needs to be) haven for touring music, theatre, comedy and lots more.”
