Cityside Hall and Kitchen space can accommodate 50 people around tables and is popular for hosting community meetings, events, workshops and training days.

Please note: there is music rehearsal room in the basement space below. You can sometimes hear the sound of these rehearsals. Most renters do not mind this sound and do not find it a problem. However, if you need a guarantee of absolute quiet, please book our auditorium. Otherwise if your event or workshop has its own background music or there is plenty of talking going on, you are likely not to notice it.
