artist led creative space
A large and welcoming space full of warmth and character, The Church is an ideal place to write, devise, rehearse and generally be creative in. And when not in use as a recording studio, the open plan layout lands itself to all kinds of other uses. It the past we've hosted workshops, photo shoots, filming, exhibitions and masterclasses, as well as our regular house concerts - it works wonderfully as an intimate performance space. If you have a project that you feel would be a good fit for St. Mary's Space, we'd love to hear about it.
15 x 5 meter suspended redwood floor, 8 meter high ceiling, natural light, wood burning stove, shelves of books and curios, painting easel, music and conductor stands, writing desk, 2 sewing machines, games and diversions, props, tricks, instruments and bric-a-brac,
wi-fi, hi-fi, a sound studio, various kinds of lighting, flat screen TV and DVD player. A small PA is also available on request.
BOOKING THE CHURCH
All bookings are unique: we'd rather price it based on requirements, so please contact us with details of your project so we can arrange a chat and tailor a quote to your requirements.
We also offer discounted accommodation for artists hiring the Church from £30 per person per night.
Accommodation includes breakfast. Other meals are available on request.
All bookings include plenty of tea and coffee.
For your convenience we book by the day. Please remember St. Mary's is also our family home, so we can't have loud noise beyond 7PM unless through special arrangement.
The number of artists the space will accommodate depends on use/equipment/etc
eg 30-50 living statues; 20 tai chi mediators; 10 performance artists; 8 acrobats; 6 contemporary dancers; 2 action painters; solo puppeteer plus 120 medium puppets.
We’re very flexible and will do our best to accommodate your needs, no matter how unusual. As artists ourselves, we are realistic about budgets and would be delighted to discuss your project and find out how we can work with you to make it happen.
