Meetings on the Barge

Hire the ONCA Barge for your team's space needs

Why not hire the ONCA Barge for all your team’s meeting needs? 

If your organisation needs a regular space to meet and work – for example if most of your team are working from home but you’re looking for a space to connect in person – we now offer a rate of £400 pcm (standard) or £350 pcm (charity) for one full day per week on the top deck.

The Barge offers a welcoming space at Brighton Marina that’s ideal for meetings, workshops, away days and other events that bring people together. The space comprises two decks – the upper deck is a light, airy, accessible space that works best for meetings with a view, talks or away days. The lower deck is an atmospheric space with a large smart screen. It’s most suited to use as a private space, or for presentations, screenings or immersive performance.

Both spaces are available to hire for one-offs or as regular bookings, and can be set up to accommodate many different needs. The upper deck can seat up to 30 people or host 60 standing, and the lower deck up to 40 standing. Space hire can include access to our tea and coffee making facilities, and we also offer additional options to hire equipment such as projector, flip charts etc.

There’s free parking in the multi-storey car park at the Marina, just a few minutes’ walk away from the Barge. As well as the beautiful view, the Marina has lots of amenities to offer, with independent cafes and businesses to frequent. If you’d like to discuss your needs for a meeting space, please do get in touch with us at or call 01273 607101.
