Spaces & Hires

We have spaces from large to small and they’re all available to hire. Whether you need a place to meet, rehearse, perform or make, you’ll find it here.


People are our power, and we’re always on the look out for more community members to roll up their sleeves and get stuck in as part of our volunteer programme.

Finding Us

Located just a stone’s throw from Blackpool’s iconic promenade, you can find us on Springfield Road near to the town centre, train station and local car parks.
