Hirers guide

This page contains technical and other information to help support our hirers and users to safely conduct their activities and get the most out of using the Pump House for their creative endeavours.


Covid-19 information

We have implemented a comprehensive set of policies and procedures to protect our hirers, staff, volunteers and audiences from Covid-19 infection risks, to allow us to open safe and usable venue spaces.

We risk assess every hirer and event as we have a wide range of differing activities. The following policies outline our core approach. The situation and advice is under constant change, so please contact us if you need more information on our most up to date policy and procedures relating to Covid-19.
