Nonsuch Studios (formerly N_SPACE) is the perfect space for artists, theatre makers, businesses and anyone with a need for space to come together and make their creative vision a reality.
Based on a vision of collaborative and outward looking working our studios are incredibly versatile and are easily transformed with a little imagination from simple set-up of a rehearsal room or meeting room right the way through to a cabaret bar, birthday venue or exhibition space. Our team are always on hand to make your vision a reality!
We’re also really chuffed that Nonsuch Studios is accessible for all via our secondary entrance on Chaucer Street. If you have more questions about access needs please do not hesitate to get in touch.
As Nonsuch Studios have grown over the past year we’ve decided to offer two new membership options for our space users: Artist Membership and Business Plus. Click the links to find out more about both of these offers or get in touch with us for more details including prices.
