Hi all -

I'm posting in both the Business forum as well as general SE1 forum.

I'm in need of a training venue for occasional adult professional education. I'd like a venue which can accommodate 5 - 10 people. I don't mind if it's a purpose built training space, or perhaps a rarely used meeting room at your facilities. Training courses would be up to 4 hours long and could be delivered according to room availability (daytime, evening, weekends are all options!)

The venue needs to be quiet where I can deliver a course and won't be disturbed by outside noises - or where we won't disturb other people working nearby! There should be several power points (students are invited to bring their laptops) and wi-fi would be great, but not essential (I can bring a mi-fi, but it wouldn't be able to work in a "dead zone").

Aside from that, I'm pretty flexible for dates, times etc. I'd build a delivery schedule around room availability and would be looking to commit initially for 3 months. This is just me, and I'm not backed by a major corporate, so whilst I'm open to paying something for the venue, cost will be an issue.

I'm looking to deliver courses across London too, so if you know venues outside of SE1 please do let me know.

Many thanks for reading!

Hi Chris,

Our room at Styles House might be suitable, email Richard at [email protected]

Graham, from Draper House is a good person to speak to too, they have a space. You are likely to be able to agree a deal with a TRA or TMO, but otherwise you could try (at higher cost) Waterloo Action Centre or Blackfrairs Settlement.

Hi Zoe

Many thanks for your quick reply.

I've just looked at your web site, and your facilities look very good.

I'll reach out to Tom now, and see what options are available.

Thanks again,

Many thanks Laura. I'm sorted for the moment, but will keep your facility in mind for the future!

Hello there,

Realise this is an old thread but thought I'd just mention that Bermondsey Furniture Project has 2 x hire rooms on a flexible basis;

In case it's helpful for future?

It looks really nice! And for this quality and high standard is quite reasonably priced. We are looking for some opportunities to expand with our company in Europe. Something like this would perfectly suit us, but we need a place for good, not occasionally.
