DJ Reviews for The Cresset

Helpful information for DJs and entertainers visiting The Cresset provided by trusted members of needadisco.com.

DateRoomFloorParkingAccessFacilitiesStaff
29/07/2016The Gallery SuiteFirst Floor via stairs

Haze/smoke allowed

No sound limiter

Air conditioned

Temporary wooden dancefloor

No useable in-house lighting effects

No windows

No stage area


PARKING: Plenty of parking, but beware the car park can get very busy especially if as was in my case, there's another wedding going on in other parts of the building

ACCESS: Flat tarmacced carpark throughout so any reasonable trolley/sack barrow will get you to the fire doors with no major problems

FACILITIES: Set up next to the fire escape at the edge of the dance floor

STAFF: Very friendly and helpful staff

POWER PROVISION: Plenty of 13A sockets in easy reach

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: "Very nice venue and a lift IS available if there isn't another function in the downstairs rooms (where the lift is located). If you have to use the steps, they're shallow and not actually too hard to get your gear up (I loaded in/out excluding setup in under 10 minutes despite the stairs)."
