Room Hire

Jane Roper exhibition
The Gallery at Florence Arts Centre

Florence Arts Centre has a number of spaces available for hire, from our small rooms ideal for meetings or workshops, to the larger Gallery and Auditorium, perfect for private functions, receptions, parties or conferences. The rusting hulk of the disused Florence Mine set against the backdrop of the Cumbrian fells provides a unique and memorable landscape for any event. If you are looking for an alternative to a faceless conference suite or hotel meeting room, look no further!

Our Gallery is ideal for small meetings, book launches, talks and Q&As – with a rotating exhibition of artwork there’s an inspiring atmosphere and relaxed ambience.

Our Auditorium space is where we host our large events from live music gigs, film screenings, theatre and stand-up comedy; it has modern lighting, projection and sound equipment, a small bar and can seat up to 80 theatre-style or 40 cabaret-style with options for parties, talks and private functions.

Our Café space is available during opening hours for meetings or for a place to work on your own away from any pressure. We have free Wi-Fi and the kettle is always on the boil!
