The Mosaic Space

At the heart of the Firstsite building is the Berryfield Mosaic, a Roman artefact unearthed in 1923 on the site on which the building now stands. The Mosaic has been painstakingly cleaned and returned to its original home, as Firstsite’s only permanent exhibit.

The Auditorium

Firstsite’s state-of-the-art auditorium seats 190 people and boasts a six-metre tab tension screen. Clad with overlapping cherrywood panels. Available to hire for your very own gallery cinema experience, film screenings, school visits, lectures, presentations and performances.

The Meeting Rooms

We offer two meeting rooms that seat either 15 or 20 delegates. Featuring boardroom-style seating, 65″ LCD screens, wi-fi, video conferencing, basic stationery including flip charts, white boards and pens. Both rooms are generously lit by natural daylight and feature blackout blinds for screenings and presentations. These rooms are available to hire and are perfect for corporate events, business meetings and other such functions.

The Function Space

Firstsite’s Learning studios transform into a stylish Function space that becomes an ideal venue to hire for banquets, awards ceremonies and celebrations. The Function Space can accommodate up to 160 people seated banqueting-style at circular tables.  Again this space is available to hire and you can find out more on our venues page.

We’d be delighted to discuss your requirements, and help you plan your event. To find out more, contact us on
