There are two halls – the big hall with a stage and a lobby with 600 seats in total, and the small hall where different concerts and exhibitions are organised for smaller numbers of people. The premises for rehearsals on the second floor are newly renovated and the third floor is occupied by the young artists of Saulkrasti – the department of Vidzeme Music and Art School.
