How much space do you need to seat guests in theatre style or for dining?

Using one of our standard Cheltenham banquet chairs or folding samsonite interlocking chairs which are approximately 40cm wide and just under 50cm deep we can calculate that 100 chairs in theatre style would take up 4m x 8.5m = 34m2

This figure does not take account of gangways and staging – my figure is purely the space needed to seat the attendees.

For dining at 5ft round tables seating 10 guests on each, you would need 3m x 3m per table = 9m2
Therefore, for every 100 diners you must allow 90m2

For 6ft Round tables seating 12 guests, you need 11.5m2 per table, in reality meaning 100m2 for 100 guests.

Using 6ft x 2ft6 trestle tables, there is just enough room to get people down both sides although with large place settings you would need to use double width rows. The tables seat 3 at each side but there isn’t really room to get a place setting at each end – you therefore need 2.3m x 1.8m per table = 4.14m2

Using this calculation, you need around 70m2 per 100 guests seated in rows.

Again these figures do not take into account room for walkways, stages, dance floors, serving tables etc etc...Dance floors are usually calculated on 4 square ft per person which is 1.2m2
