For many years the two dressing rooms behind the stage were used for pantomimes and amateur dramatics. Since those activities fell out of favour the rooms effectively became storage cupboards.
Following refurbishment the cold draughty rooms are now warm and bright. They have a separate entrance, so can be accessed without disturbing groups in the hall. They also have their own handy toilet and kitchenette.
The stage is still available for bands and other performers in the hall.
