Performance and rehearsal spaces
LIPA's licensed performance spaces, along with drama and music rehearsal rooms, can be booked by students and used for independent productions, if available.
All the equipment needed to stage an independent small-scale production or performance within LIPA is available from Technical Services. All students can hire, for free, musical instruments, PAs, cameras and video equipment for use on site.
Open for breakfasts and lunches with a friendly family atmosphere, LIPA's canteen has been a supporter of Meat Free Monday since 2009. In the evenings it's often converted into a music venue, hosting bands, open mic and karaoke nights.
