Why should you host your event at Fruitworks?
Because our space is not like the large venues that are overly large & the small 'cloak' rooms that can only fit 10 or so people. Our space is that perfect in-between size. Our aim is to provide a new exciting space, where we make it as easy as possible for you to host the event you want! From baby showers, indoor markets, art shows and speed dating to networking meetings, training workshops and award ceremonies. We want to help you have the best time without wasting your time with the normal faff that comes with organising an event.
