55 East is made up of 2 spaces which are designed for residents to access, meet and create in. The venue is supported by Peadbody Trust, who gave the charity - Hatch Enterprise - the opportunity to refurbish the spaces and transform them into a usable venue for East Street and beyond.
There is the Lounge - an open plan space equipped with a projector, sound system, tables & chairs - and the Kitchen - a fully-fitted catering venue which hosts regular food pop-ups throughout the week. Because of the flexibility of the space, we host an array of events. From indoor boot sales, to female-only boxing sessions, to food business training programmes and networking events. There is something for everybody.
We want to work with our neighbours to ensure 55 East represents the local area and offers needed activities. If you’re looking for a space to make an idea happen, email or come knock on our door.
