Our largest space, Voices Hall is a superb venue for any event. Seats up to 90 people (theatre style); fewer people in cabaret or conference style with tables. It is a flexible space with loose seating, making it ideal whatever your event.
With an excellent acoustic and a first class Schimmel Grand Piano available (a six foot C182T model, new in October 2013), Voices Hall is the perfect venue for recitals, chamber concerts and workshops. The hall works particularly well for jazz gigs, as well as vocal and instrumental performances.
Rates for concert packages vary depending on set up and staffing requirements, and from January 2017 range from £28 per hour to £38 for a fully set up and staffed concert. PRS charges and piano tuning, if required, are additional; publicity displayed in the venue is included in the hire prices. Tickets can be sold through Foulds Music Shop in Derby, and we are happy to look after the contact with Foulds on behalf of any hirer.
‘The VoiceBox is a wonderful resource for musical events and possibly unique in the Derby area in having such fine accoustics and facilities. The attractiveness of this venue has recently been enhanced with the addition of an excellent new, Schimmel Grand Piano. This instrument has both a sensitive action and consistent tone quality, with ample dynamics through the range making it an ideal instrument for both the accompanist and soloist. The tone quality is even and smooth across the register and the responsivess of the action make a joy to play. This a piano that would inspire any player to give of their best.’ Professional pianist and regular hirer, 2013.
Voices Hall is also the ideal space for your next meeting or conference. With many layout options available, including theatre style, workshop style and cabaret style, the room will be set up for your arrival if required. Equally, if you have a very specific layout in mind, or are working to a budget, you may prefer to set up yourself. WiFi is available, as are screens and flipcharts.
Whatever your requirements, you can guarantee that at the VoiceBox your event will be looked after by our dedicated team of venue staff, and you and your guests will receive a warm and friendly welcome.
