Please note that hires are under rolling review due to COVID-19. We are undergoing a phased re-opening, but some activities are not yet possible. Capacity is reduced for all spaces while COVID restrictions remain in place.
VAT is charged on all hires. Licensed Bar available. Basic marketing and sales and support is included for event and exhibition hires.
The Stationside Bar
A large event space with bar, which can also function as a gallery. Suitable for events and launches, talks, meetings, and informal performances.
Prices on enquiry. Day or half-day rates available. Tea/coffee available.
The Seaside* Gallery
A large Gallery with white walls, and natural and fluorescent light. Tables/plinths available.
This is a flexible, attractive space suitable for exhibitions, events and receptions/launches. The gallery operates according to a DIY ethic – artists install their own work and may rearrange the space and furnishings to suit. You may paint and/or screw fixings into the gallery walls but are expected to return the gallery to the state in which you found it. A returnable damage deposit is payable on Exhibition hires in addition to the hire charge. Staffing for an evening reception event is included in the hire cost. We charge 20% commission on artwork sold through the exhibition and can take cash and card payments.
*It’s not actually by the seaside.
The Bunker Theatre

Approximately half the space is a raised stage area with a sprung plywood floor, compression tiles and laid dancefloor.
Audience capacity is dependent on staging/format. There are some sightline restrictions. Power is a 63amp 3-phase supply via Avolites power cube. General lighting rig and two speaker sound system included in hire. Day and half-day rates are available, as are discounts for longer rehearsal/R&D hires
