Renter Responsibilities

What are the renters responsibilities?

Festival Hall operates as a bridge between a performance hall and a community centre. All our renters should bring a spirit of DIY to their events. While we offer professional sound technician services and experienced bar service staff, all other front and back-of-house duties are the renter's responsibility. This includes, but is not limited to, setup and strike of all furniture, cleaning, ticketing, greeting, ushering, stage managing, catering, etc.

We ask renters to clean up any major spills after your event, remove all outside rental gear and make Big Rock beer available for sale if your event is public.
