GUEST,Blowzabella sans cookie What makes a room suitable for a Folk concert? (48) RE: What makes a room suitable for a Folk concert? 09 Aug 11

Re the slightly raised area of the room - it may be enough of a difference - difficult to say. Will performers be standing or seated? If seated - I'd say, probably not. If standing - you might well get away with it.

A note re seating - I thnk that chairs have to be set out so that a person is never more than 5 seats away from an aisle. Therefore, if you want to have a single central block - it would need to be no more than 10 chairs wide, with an aisle at either end.

If you do go for this option, make sure there is at least one gap / aisle lengthwise as well so that somone, say, in the front row, sitting nearest the aisle, doesn't necessarily need to walk right to the back of the room to walk round the chairs (assuming he has good manners enough to not just walk straight across in front of the stage!)
