The Space x

Two beautiful and spacious hire galleries, in a creative venue housing print studios, meeting room for hire, coworking desks and studio space.

Our spaces run on a proposal basis and are available to hire for exhibitions, creative events and special projects. It is possible to book both spaces jointly for larger events and exhibitions at a weekly rate of £5000.

Managed by arts charity Artists' Studio Company, The Handbag Factory is ideal for creative events, exhibitions and showcases, plus talks, conferences, workshops, publication launches and more.

With high ceilings and large windows throughout, this bright and large venue is perfect for a range of events. The spaces can be booked separately or as a whole to amplify your creative event.

Fully equipped with dedicated reception and high-speed internet, the event hire spaces can accommodate between 300 and 400 people each, with access to a private garden and a breakout space for your guests. Together, the spaces accommodate up to 800 guests with combined access to breakout areas including a connecting corridor, additional gallery, and outside area.

Our venue boasts plenty of natural light and is easily transformed to suit your event needs. We offer furniture upon request, as well as invigilation and technical support.

The space is ideal for bookings of one week or longer. However if you have an idea for a shorter day or weekend event, get in touch and we can discuss your plans! Bookings of one week or longer include a private view on a Thursday or Friday evening, with additional events and services available at an extra cost.
