About this space

The Ditch is the untouched basement of the original Grade II listed building. Over a dozen interconnecting rooms with original features, exposed brickwork and pipes, fireplaces and stoves provide a unique and intimate setting for events.

Despite the abandoned aesthetic, The Ditch has full production capabilities and remains as flexible and responsive as the rest of the building. It can be transformed to create an immersive setting for memorable product launches, creative fundraising events, unique receptions, conference breakout spaces and even dining.
