Studio/Office/Workshop space to rent

We have space in our central Brighton office and studio coming up to share!

Would you like to join us? The space available is a large desk, shelving, storage, kitchenette, Wifi, and use of workshop tables. There is also access to loading bays, trader discounts and meeting space.

This would be for long term use but we would consider short term use too.

The space is available from beginning March 2020 onwards and will be sharing with Strike a Light – Arts & Heritage and our occasional studio hires.

If you would like to find out more then do get in touch!

Our space is available any time from now onwards. Our current sub tenants are moving out on 9th April, but they have said if we find someone sooner they are happy to move out before so we are advertising it as avail asap.

You are welcome to come and view the space if you like. Address below.

Space is a desk and a fair amount of storage in the studio, along with use of the main meeting tables and whiteboard etc for meetings and so on. We currently have a shared diary with the current sub tenants so that we can make sure there’s no clash but that is for important meetings and studio bookings (which we have sometimes).
Otherwise it’s pretty informal and we are often in at the same time working on respective projects with no clash.

There’s also a shared kitchenette with sink, microwave, minifridge, storage, plates cups etc to use.

The space is accessible at the market from 8am-7.30pm Mondays to Fridays, 8-6pm on Saturdays and 9-5pm on Sundays, and we have a post box to receive our mail at the market with keys. Also accessible on the balcony.

The space is £285 pcm and includes all utilities, broadband, service charge and cleaning.

There are loading bays downstairs which you can use for delivery and unloading but not for parking. We are on the bus route and near Brighton train station too.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Strike a Light – Arts & Heritage is delivering free families workshops in October and November 2018 in venues across Brighton and Hove to look at the theme of The Unremembered – commemorating the Labour Corps service personnel in World War I.

With support from creative facilitators, we’ll be creating articulated puppets on templates designed, created and compiled by children.
We will be using fabric scraps, wrapping paper and wall paper to create overlaid uniforms for these puppets and to bring them to life.

The puppet theme for this project is two-fold – An engaging and accessible way to teach young people and community groups who are unaware of this lost period of history about the Labour Corps, and also puppets as a symbol for the role of the Labour Corps in terms of having no control over their work or location, that they were moved around like mules and treated as such.
This will help to remember some of the soldiers who served with the Labour Corps and their link with Sussex and draw this forgotten history into the light.

We’re pleased to have been commissioned to become a hub in Brighton and Hove by the Big Ideas Company to develop activities with local community groups to explore the history of the Labour Corps – service personnel during World War I, and often forgotten in this part of history.
