Hire Us


For all your events needs…

Situated near the Waterfront development in Barry, the Memo Arts Centre has a valued reputation for being a unique venue for wedding parties, corporate gatherings, conferences, award ceremonies and private celebrations, as well as a popular entertainment, cinema and arts centre.

Our tailored client packages and services allow us to accommodate a wide and varied programme of events and activities that include; community and local productions, charitable events and special occasions. Our experienced staff offer hands on experience and professional advice to ensure the successful management and delivery of all your events needs.


Want to bring your production or show to us? We promote our own performing arts programme at the Memo. Our own-promoted live and cinema programme covers a diverse range including music, comedy, drama, circus, dance, opera and musicals. For more information, please visit http://www.memoartscentre.co.uk/your-show-with-us/

Looking to hire one of our spaces for your show? If we feel your production is not suitable for our own-promoted performing arts programme, you may wish to consider promoting your event yourself at the Memo by hiring the venue. We hire out our theatre spaces for theatre and dance performances (long and shorts runs), live music gigs, special events, filming, community, corporate and charitable activities. The Memo can also provide a Box Office service for these events (Memo Arts Centre – Box Office Agent Service 2017). We provide some basic marketing coverage within the basic hire price (e.g. brochure and website listing) but we expect the hirer to take the primary responsibility for the marketing and promotion of their event.

Hiring for a celebration, presentation, corporate meeting, or charity event? All of our spaces can be hired subject to availability and suitability for the event proposed. We regularly host conferences, meetings, corporate and charity events, and can provide a complete package that includes catering and technical support, and the use of multiple spaces. Along with the Main Hall and Auditorium, various function spaces are available throughout all levels of the building. Our facilities can accommodate for all types of events, small and large, whether it is presenting a music concert for an audience of 1000, an awards dinner for up to 300 guests, or a family party for up to 130 guests, we pride ourselves on delivering bespoke events.

Need any catering or technical help? As well as space hire, we can also offer a range of additional services; licensed bars, full catering and hospitality facilities, specialist stage, sound and lighting facilities, business and conference equipment, complete access, and the assurance of a on-site 150 space car park.

Planning a Special Occasion? You need a Special Place.. Ask us about our Party Celebration Packages, which start from £100. Suitable for engagements, wedding parties, birthdays and family celebrations for up to 120 guests.
