Derry Opera House
Notwithstanding what you may read elsewhere, the balcony area of the Derry Opera
House is currently closed to public seating. The Assembly Permit capacity
of the Opera House has been decreased by 100 from 375 to 275. We have
265 chairs for the main floor, and that
should be considered the maximum seating capacity, until further notice.

process of renting the Opera House. It also list all the prerequisites and
requirements you must meet in order to rent. We recommend you start with this
Rental Pricing Schedule - what it will cost.
Bookings Calendar - when the space is available (or not). This is a
view-only, Outlook WebApp Calendar.
It's the master calendar for Opera House bookings.
Please let us know if you have any issues using the Rental Bookings Calendar.

only a one to two month advance time window, but has more details on
