Hire The Barge

Hire our unique floating venue

Set over two large floors, ONCA’s new floating venue for East Brighton is perfect for leading a workshop, talk or hosting a team away day. The versatile upper deck is wheelchair accessible*, with large windows that look out onto the sea and the small fishing boats at the Marina. It is a flexible and inviting space, with access to a sink and kitchen facilities, and two wheelchair-accessible toilets.

The lower deck is split into two spaces: the larger is ideal for installations, screenings, performances and can also be used as a rehearsal space.  The smaller is a studio or meeting space. Please email thebarge@onca.org.uk for all enquiries.
