The events space

The design for the Exhibition Hall makes the most use of the impressive height of The Forge. The building faces south west and the six high windows in the street facing wall and huge skylights give good natural light throughout the day and diffused sunlight in the afternoons and evenings. Spotlights on easily accessible lighting rigs can be electrically raised and lowered to focus on displays. The natural acoustics are exceptionally good

The Exhibition Hall provides 1000 square feet of dramatic space and 600 square feet of bleacher seating which can also be used for displays. A number of listed industrial features such as the two overhead cranes have been retained and provide a strong backdrop of historic architecture.

More Information

The walls are rough brickwork with the patina of The Forge’s industrial heritage and fitted with a hanging system of nylon string and metal clasps suitable for displaying creative pieces and works of art.  It is a unique environment to hold an exhibition or event at competitive rates.
