Event Space


Please Note – Due to necessary repair works to the external wall of our Event Space, part of the Event Space has been sectioned off. This has reduced the useable space of the room by approximately one third. The stage, dance floor and sofa areas of the room remain useable, but the top of the room (the Peace Flame area) is blocked off. Some sightlines for the stage and dance floor area are also restricted.

For an updated capacity, please see below in red.


The Event Space is our largest and most versatile room, with beautiful rustic timber flooring, exposed brickwork, and large windows over the Mill Stream that look towards the Somerset Levels. It’s also home to our gorgeous Peace Flame area; totally unique to the Red Brick Building.

The Event Space is kitted out with a stage, professional PA sound system and stage lights, making it the perfect venue for gigs and private parties. The unique shape of the room lends itself well to breakout spaces, and our comfy sofas and coffee tables give the room a charming, relaxed character.

The Event Space’s flexibility makes it suitable for a wide range of bookings. Popular uses of the room include:

  • Large meetings and conferences
  • Public drop-in events and coffee mornings
  • Private lunches
  • Gigs and live music events
  • Live Theatre
  • Private parties
  • Wedding receptions (see here for more info)


The Event Space is 2000 square foot in size and, as with all of our rooms, it’s fitted with a hearing loop and comes with access to our WiFi. Located on the ground floor, the room is fully accessible. Disabled toilets are also located on the ground floor.

Please note: The Red Brick Building is a not-for-profit project, run by volunteers and a small staff team. We strive to keep hire costs as affordable as possible. As such, we ask all hirers to support our community ethos and thereby kindly request they leave the room clean and tidy, and clear away any used furniture and equipment after their booking.
