Security - For large, or high profile events (over 100) we request that you hire security. We provide 2.5m of roped bollards. For all events we require a sober team-member to monitor entrances and prevent visitors from wandering onto the road, as cars often speed downhill.
All doors must stay shut outside business hours (weekdays). If the loading dock is hired the roller shutter must be closed.
Cleaning - Sweep or vacuum debris from all hired areas and facilities before vacating.
To avoid a cleanup/damage fee, the vacated space, walls, facilities and furniture must be left in good order
Noise - The airspace is mostly shared, so be mindful of any activities that generate noise and keep music low. No shouting/yelling.
Please do not expect complete silence, there will generally be some talking, foot traffic, occasional music and vehicle noise.
Garbage - All rubbish / recycling generated during your hire must be taken with you on the day of your hire.
Consecutive Bookings - We have multiple event spaces and may host more than one booking per day.
We will notify you if this is the case however, you are hiring our space with the knowledge that there is a certain level of noise and activity in the building.
Hired Space - Keep patrons and usage within defined hired space only. The rest of the building / spaces are private or for tenant access only.
Privacy - Please view the premises prior to hire to ensure suitability.
None of the downstairs areas have doors, and as such we cannot guarantee your hired space will be 100% private. An acoustic partition is available to place between the front and middle rooms if required.
Deposit / Payment - We require a 30% non-refundable deposit to be paid in advance of the booking. If we do not have a deposit, your room / date will be given to the next interested party.
