Metal’s Venues

Chalkwell Hall – Southend

Metal’s space in Southend on Sea, Chalkwell Hall is a stunning Georgian Manor House built in 1830 recently renovated by Metal into a low carbon house for the development of artistic ideas.  It has flexible working space, two double bedrooms, a magnificent dining room and a year round programme of artist’s residencies and multi-disciplinary projects and events.

Edge Hill Station – Liverpool

Metal’s space in Liverpool, Edge Hill Station is the oldest passenger railway station in the world.  Built in 1836 the space is an inspiring location for the creation of work.  The space lends itself to the creation of visual art due to the size and industrial nature of the buildings, however, we will also consider applications from writers, theatre practitioners and start-up creative industries such as graphic designers, architects etc.

Chauffeurs Cottage – Peterborough

Originally a residential property in the Cathedral grounds,  Chauffeurs Cottage was recently renovated by Metal into a hub of flexible office, studio, performance and meeting spaces. There are also dedicated facilities for sound recording and digital production and an large courtyard with a grand entrance gate that is part of the original Cathedral wall.
