RUA RED is not just an office space, it is a rehearsal space, a writer’s space, a producer’s space. Both practically and artistically RUA RED, its location and facilities are invaluable to the everyday workings of this arts organisation. Apart from my office, access to the project space (for facilitating set build, painting) and all the many other additional support systems which would not exist in a basic office facility, have meant Garbo Productions has the ability to create theatre in an environment where this process belongs and is celebrated.
Being a tenant in a RUA RED studio has been very important to my practice. The studios themselves and the atmosphere and energy in the building are inspiring. It is testament to all the staff and the wider group of people involved in education and various modes of cultural production within this centre that make it a unique venue and workplace.
We have been dealing with RUA RED for more than three years now. In all that time the staff have always been very courteous, efficient, professional and, above all, welcoming in our dealings with them. The facilities are top notch and we feel that the children and parents attending our theatre school – and also the adults rehearsing with our company – see us in a very positive light given the facilities that we have from RUA RED. We are delighted to be associated with RUA RED.

Alternative Entertainments has worked with RUA RED since the centre opened. We have used its facilities for music classes, festivals, conferences, visual arts exhibitions, artistic workshops, lectures and film screenings. The centre is set up to cater for all types of arts and education events, and has enhanced the artistic life of the area in the past six years. The staff are knowledgeable and have been of great assistance to us and other groups running projects in their spaces. We expect to work with RUA RED on many existing and new projects into the future
I would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thanks for looking after us so well during the course of filming Operation Transformation. It really was a pleasure. The staff could not have been more helpful, and the space was exactly what we needed. It goes without saying that we would be delighted to use this space again, both for Operation Transformation and any other appropriate projects we in VIP may have going forward.
I’m happy to have used RUA RED from 2012 to date for my training course bookings. RUA RED has been the best venue we ever hired for our training course in view of accessibility, customer service, space and ease of communication with the staff. We have been continuously impressed with the level of professionalism displayed by the staff as well as their positive engagement within the community. I would highly recommend RUA RED for anyone looking to hire a venue, as they never disappoint you.
