The in-house QLab 3 is capable of running video content (we do not have video capabilities through QLab 4). There are no projectors or screens at the King’s Head Theatre. Please contact the Theatre Manager in advance of any production if projection is involved.

Stage Configuration

The theatre is configured in either “end-on” or “thrust”

Please double check the configuration of the theatre for your show.

Please also note that all three doorways to backstage are not always available as this depends on seating and sets in place.
