    Pricing Terms

    Pricing is always negotiated based on what the space is required for.

    Live performances are ticketed with proceeds going to the performer, less production costs.

    Hire of the space is priced dependent on duration and staffing required. For example, a photo shoot will not require staffing however a meeting, launch, or workshop function would. A photo shoot will require a minimum 4 hour booking, however a meeting, launch or workshop function can be flexible.

    Whatever you require, we have probably done something the same or similar and can guide you through the best option for what you need.
