New Brunswick and the Great War Opening Presentations, 2014

Located on the second floor, the balcony is the ideal location for small events that require a unique location such as presentations, luncheons, small concerts and receptions.

The Fredericton Region Museum balcony has been rented by private individuals for parties held during festivals held in Officers’ Square to take advantage of the scenery and music. The balcony has also been used to hold afternoon luncheons, VIP events and a fashion show.

Use of the balcony is always weather permitting. In the event of severe rainfall, activities can be moved indoors.  A guest speaker will require a microphone because of the street noise.

The balcony is original to the building, if children are on the balcony then they must be accompanied by an adult.

Balcony Size
Main Part  – 9’ x 74’ 8”
Approximately 670 square feet
In addition, the area around the stairs is approximately 100 square feet

Capacity
Banquet Style (60″ wide round tables) – Maximum 40 people
Conference Style (Attendees sat on all sides) – Maximum 22 people
Theatre or Auditorium Style (Rows of chairs) – Maximum 40 people
Reception Style – Maximum 60 people

These calculations are an approximation of balcony capacity. Extra room square footage will need to be subtracted to accommodate staging and audio requirements. Also, allow for other obstructions.
