As well as the workshop areas, the Hackspace has a good quality social space with chairs and folding tables able to seat up to 38(?). There is a ceiling mounted projector that displays on the end wall, basic amplification and a hearing loop (currently untested) for those using hearing aids.

The shutter onto the field opens into the social space, making it well suited to events that have a small outside component. Due to fire regulations, you must leave the shutter open whenever the space is occupied, even if using the projector. The projector should be bright enough to be seen with the shutter open.
