Wergeland (178 m2) is the biggest room at The House of Literature. The venue can fit 200 people in an amphitheatre with chairs at the front, 140 people in an amphitheatre set-up with small round café tables, 72 people around small round café tables without an amphitheatre set-up, or 120 people at long tables.
Wergeland is equipped with a good sound and light system. It is also the building’s only venue with a teleloop system. The room also has an extendable amphitheatre set-up with a capacity of 105 people, which can be removed upon request. The artist May Bente Aronsen’s textiles decorate the room and provide intimacy and atmosphere.
The room is also suitable for film viewings, lectures, and seminars, as well as parties and receptions. If you are planning an event with more than 200 people, you can book Wergeland in combination with for instance Amalie Skram and have a direct transmission of sound and image on a big screen.
In Wergeland it is necessary to book one of the House’s internal technicians.
