Rules of the space
The Forge is located in a residential area and Craft Central is keen to ensure nearby residents are not disturbed. The building is quite soundproofed but contains working creative studios.
For these reasons, we reserve the right to refuse any booking at our discretion and to require noise in the car park and outside the front door is kept to a minimum after 10.00 pm.
There is a hanging system in use in the Hall which works on strong nylon cables suspended from the wall. This is a listed building and nothing can be screwed/drilled into the external walls with prior approval. Large moveable display cabinets are included and extra plinths are available.
