With the box office area recently handed over in the refurbished ground  floor of the Gulbenkian Theatre, the new music facility at the University of  Kent is not far behind.  The new Colyer  Fergusson Hall (£5.4m) provides a performing space for both singing and  instrumental music.  Retractable theatre  style seating has been installed as well as the latest technology in the form  of lighting and sound equipment.  The  hall benefits from an abundance of natural light from both large windows and a  sky light.

As well as a large hall the new building boats a welcoming open plan  reception area that spans the length of the building, there are band and  practice rooms with acoustic panels and heavily insulated walls to prevent  sound escaping.  Further facilities include  classrooms, offices and toilets.

The building will be handed over in October with performances taking place  from November onwards.
