The newly refurbished Thorngate Ballroom offering superb cuisine and fully licensed bars is the ideal venue for the formal dinner dance, wedding, private party, concert etc.. Accommodating up to 250 in a formal setting, the number increases to 300 for an informal dance or 350 in concert style. The well-equipped and capacious stage can accmmodate the largest of dance bands or disco whilst the new sprung floor is without doubt the finest dancefloor in the area.

The Thorngate Theatre is an asset beyond measure. Licensed to seat 238 in concert style, the theatre is equipped to fulfil even the most demanding Company in their production of drama, comedy or musical performances. Complete with stage lighting, orchestra pit, dressing rooms and cavernous stage, the facilities are such that even John Barrymore or Sir Henry Irving would be at home on the boards. With its licensed bar as requisite, the theatre will comfortably hold up to 150 persons for private parties and weddings.

The ballroom does not allow self catering however we offer a choice of 4 contract caterers with a great range of menus. The Theatre and Georgian Suit allow for self-catering but no professional catering (no kitchen available).

The following information will be useful to DJs, entertainers and other service providers who have been hired to work at Thorngate Halls (Gosport Community Assn).

  • Function Room

    This review provided by Wyld Parties on 14/04/2017

    Function Room is located on the Ground floor.

    Parking:Access:Facilities:Staff:
    Haze/smoke allowed
    No sound limiter
    No useable in-house effects
    Blinds/curtains provided
    No air conditioning
    No specific dancefloor area
    No stage area

    PARKING: There's a large Car Park round the back of the Venue, which may benefit you dependent on where you're booked to perform within the venue.

    ACCESS: I was in the Music Room for this booking. Single Door access from the front of the venue (adjacent to the Main Entrance). Probably be prepared for a 10m walk from your vehicle to the entrance of the room.

    STAFF: Staff were great, friendly and approachable.

    COMMENTS: Two 13A Sockets behind the DJ Set Up area. Music Room required a Small Set Up. Didn't pick up any Wi-Fi Hotspots unfortunately.

  • Theatre

    This review provided by CCL Sound & Light on 05/08/2016

    Theatre is located on the Ground floor.

    Parking:Access:Facilities:Staff:
    High permanent stage
    No sound limiter
    Vinyl or stone floor area for dancing
    Some useable in-house effects
    Blinds/curtains provided
    No air conditioning
    Haze/smoke prohibited

    PARKING: Lots of free parking out the back.

    ACCESS: This review is for the theatre, the medium sized venue. From the car park up 3 steps straight on to the side of the stage. Stage is about 3ft high.

    STAFF: Lock the door from the stage down to the auditorium so the only way down is to climb the stage.

    COMMENTS: Venue's main use is a theatre but also used for private parties when main hall already booked.
