The Centre for Culture in Lublin offers its spaces for conferences, presentations, banquets or special meetings.
Most of the spaces of the renovated Visitation Order’s Convent today serve the activities of the Centre for Culture, Hieronim Łopaciński Municipal Public Library and the Centre for Intercultural Creative Initiatives “Crossroads”. They can be rented out unless it interferes with the cultural events taking place at the Centre for Culture.
The building has an excellent location in the city centre, adjacent to several hotels and a guarded underground car park. The property is accessible for disabled people.
The building has a cloaks room for 250 people.
Venues for the audiences:
Main Auditorium – 170 seats on amphitheatre seating
Main Performance Room is the heart of the building, but also a place of rich and fascinating history. Over the years it has changed its functions numerous times: it used to be a Convent’s church, an Orthodox church, a military casino, and later the main stage for theatre-makers connected with the Centre.
At present, after merging of the two storeys, the original shape of the hall was restored and a modern space was created for presenting mainly small and large stage forms as well as for conferences, lectures and meetings. The unique atmosphere of the hall is created by the stage situated in the place of the former altar. The space of the Main Auditorium can be adapted according to the needs of particular events. It is possible to strike down the stage, as well as to remove the front rows of the audience.
