Details of Sound Spill:

Sound can spill from our Main Hall downstairs so we will never rent out/programme Fyfe Hall for a performance when there is a large/loud event downstairs. This is why our preferred evening event times are between 7pm -9pm to avoid sound clashes.

Our preferred times for rehearsals is 9.30am - 5.30pm to avoid clashing with louder events during the evening.
