Private party and performance space

Where better to celebrate a big birthday, anniversary (maybe even a wild-style wedding reception)… to give someone a fabulous send-off or a warm welcome home… than a place specifically designed and professionally run for people to have fun – by people who really understand the serious business of enjoyment! Cool and contemporary in design (without making anyone feel out of place!), it’s happily hip, warm and welcoming – so, your friends and family will feel right at home. Whether it’s your favourite DJs on the decks, a band or a party singer, you can make it your own private nightclub, rock venue, rave or even, because it’s in the open air with stretch tent cover, a full-on mini-festival! And of course, because this is a popular live performance / nightclub / dance music venue, we’ve got you 100% covered for drinks, catering and even providing live bands, DJs and pretty much any other entertainment you have in mind.

fully equipped for sound and vision

Because Dog & Whistle The Venue is a purpose-built live performance arena and nightclub space, it’s great for dance classes from street dance to Salsa, aerobic fitness classes such as Zumba and even dance company rehearsal sessions. Its built-in stage and excellent sight lines make it an ideal setting for business presentations, lectures, educational projects such as writing, poetry and drama workshops, drama rehearsals and music/drama auditions too. What’s more, with the in-house sound and lighting systems, licensed bar and catering, you’ve got a complete turnkey service for experiential marketing, brand activations, product launch events, press conferences and photo calls and a lot more besides.


Thanks to its stunning stretch tent cover and stylish yet adaptable décor, our venue gives you the vibe of the great outdoors with full, all-year-round protection from the elements. So, you have headroom and breathing space as well as all that headspace. In the quiet times, weekday daytimes and evenings, it’s just right for all sorts of mental and physical health and wellbeing activities – Yoga, Pilates, Tai Chi and all kinds of martial arts, for example… Enjoy the fresh air and feel at ease without worrying about the wind and rain.

A showcase and promotional space for bands and artists

Don’t leave your band’s showcase gig to chance. When you need to be sure of peak performance, perfect sound and maximum impact, take charge of your show by hiring our space. We provide the sound, the lights, the stage and the vibe – you bring the talent, the passion and the audience! In the same way, sometimes the garage or the rehearsal studio doesn’t quite cut it. Our venue’s here for when you need that final rehearsal to feel as thrilling as the real deal – you can even make it a private show for friends and family. That atmosphere and sense of occasion is also what makes this terrific for ‘live action’-style promo video and photo shoots – and as a film & TV location for shooting nightclub, party and gig scenes.
