New Bar Tables

At the request of regular hirers, the PMC have purchased 5 new folding bar tables as a trial. These tables will be available for Palais room hires only. They are perfect for supper room functions and to create and intimate performance space in the main hall. At this stage our current chairs will be used with them. We look forward to feed back on their usefulness.
