When using tiered seating the hirer is required to install and remove the safety railings. There are no additional charges for the use of the kitchen, (which includes stove, microwave, urn, fridge, dishwasher and some cutlery and crockery) on the condition that it is left clean and tidy.
Theatre lighting and sound equipment can also be hired at a cost of $50 (each) per performance. There is also a charge for a technician to operate the lights/sound/projection if this is needed, as an experienced operator is required. A theatre screen is also available at a cost of $25. A projector is available but must be operated by a Drill Hall Theatre technician (at a cost).
Air conditioning at the Drill Hall can be operated by a coin machine, 3x $1 coins per hour. A flat rate per performance can be negotiated if there is a Drill Hall committee person at the event.
