FAQ

GETTING TO MOTW

,

Q: ARE DOGS ALLOWED IN THE VENUE?

A: We are very dog friendly and welcome dogs with responsible owners. We merely ask that dogs are kept under control at all times. Water bowls are always available upon request if none are already out.

Q: ARE CHILDREN ALLOWED TO ATTEND THE EVENTS IN THE EVENING?

A: We are a family friendly venue and encourage children to experience the wide variety of live music events we host on a regular basis. We acknowledge our licensing responsibility to safeguard the safety of children and treat each event individually as to whether it's safe for children to attend. As a general rule though we permit the presence of children providing they are accompanied by a responsible adult.

Q: DO YOU HIRE OUT THE VENUE FOR PRIVATE EVENTS/PARTIES? IF SO, WHAT ARE YOUR CHARGES?

A: Yes. Our room hire costs are based on our staffing fees which are generally around £25 per hour. We would also need to allow an hour before and after the event commences/ends for set up and clean up purposes. Therefore, a 4 hour event would cost £100 plus an additional £50 for the extra 2 hours of prep/cleaning. If you wish to provide a band for your event, they are welcome to use our fantastic sounding 4K PA system, monitors mics etc FOC. All we ask for is that our sound engineer costs are covered at £10 per hour for the time they need to be there. DJs can use the PA system FOC though as no sound engineer would be required. For all room booking enquires please use this form.

Q: CAN WE PROVIDE OUR OWN FOOD FOR A PRIVATE EVENT?

A: We have no problem with you providing your own catering but as we are a strictly vegan establishment, we do not support the consumption of meat, fish, poultry and dairy on the premises so your food would need to be 100% vegan. Our catering team are happy to give guidance on this or provide you with a competitive quote for a delicious hot or cold vegan buffet. Menus available on request.

Q: WHAT HOURS ARE YOU LICENSED UNTIL FOR SELLING ALCOHOL AND PERMITTING LIVE MUSIC AND DJS TO PERFORM?

A: We are licensed for Live Music performance between the hours of 10am and 11pm Sunday to Thursday and 10am till midnight on Fridays and Saturdays. DJ music is permitted between 10am and 2am Monday to Saturday and 10am till midnight on Sundays. The sale of alcohol is permitted between 10am and midnight Sunday to Thursday and 10am till 2am on Fridays and Saturdays. Extensions for all of these licensable activities can be arranged for events that need to continue later on into the night.

Q: WHAT IS THE CAPACITY OF YOUR VENUE?

A: At present our capacity for "standing" events is up to 350 but is likely to be increased in the near future with the further venue developments proposed. For seated events our current capacity is approximately 200.
