Recital Room

8 4 13

In summer 2013, the 'Old Library' was converted into a much-needed performance space for small concerts, meetings and other gatherings.

Used extensively by external parties, such as governors and villagers, and with stunning views over The Park, the building was designed to be modern and spacious at the time; it still keeps that sense of modernity today.

Constructed entirely by Bede's in-house Estates team, the then-Library opened in the mid-1990s and quickly became a hub for students and staff at the centre of the school.

The Recital Room underwent several refurbishments before its conversion, but the now-adapted facility boasts new soft furnishings, student paintings and staging space for concerts on a variety of scales.

The room has seen an array of events take place there: Speech Society talks, debating competitions, meetings, concerts, jazz café evenings and lessons.

With good lighting, sound, projection and PowerPoint provision, seating and a selection of musical equipment, the Recital Room is the perfect place for performance - even if it was never designed for that purpose!
