Booking an event at the Stannary


(Credit Jack Matthews)

The Stannary Bar is Cornwall’s largest indoor venue with an overall capacity of 1400.  The area can also be split down into two smaller rooms: the Lower Stannary with a capacity of 1100 and the Upper Stannary with a capacity of 300. 

The space is ideal for both live music and DJ sets.  During term time the Stannary is committed to operating a ‘student only’ policy with slightly more flexibility outside of the academic calendar.

If you are a student looking to host an event for your club or society we’d love to hear from you! Please get in touch with the Bar Manager, Alex Simms-Rosser (email

If you are a Promotor and wish to hold an event with us please read the Venue Hire Agreement and complete the Booking Form below.  Completed forms and any queries can be submitted via

As you may be aware, a new government law regarding social gatherings of more than six people comes into effect on Monday 14 September. To protect our students and staff and minimise the spread of COVID-19, we are unable to offer live music gigs in the Stannary from Monday onwards until restrictions are lifted and it is safe to run them.
