Venue Hire & Catering

Space hire

The Co-op is available as a venue for hire. Our space can be transformed to suit your meeting, party, music event, film night or workshop needs. We have audiovisual equipment for hire including microphones, amplifier and sound system, and a projector. We would love to provide catering for your event at the Co-op – check out our catering options below.

Kitchen hire

Our kitchen is unavailable for hire to new clients until further notice. We plan to make it available once again in the future.

Our kitchen is available to hire and includes a four-burner gas stove, large oven, ample sinks, dish sanitising machine and plenty of bench space. For kitchen workshops, we recommend no more than eight people in the kitchen at once because it can get a bit crowded. Please note that only vegetarian food can be prepared in our kitchen.
