Room Hire

We have several rooms available for hire which are suited for small meetings for a handful of people through to theatre productions, film nights, and wedding receptions.

Platform 2

Our new performance space on the first floor is known as platform 2. This is a reference to the fact that there is no second platform at West Croydon Station, which was filled in to extend platform 3 in the 1990s. The space has an independent entrance or can be accessed through the cafe-bar. The space is well suited for comedy nights, theatre productions, live music events, birthday parties and other special occasions with a capacity of more than 100 people.

Meeting Room

Our meeting room is based on the first floor with an independent entrance as well as a kitchenette. The space is suitable for business meetings and more casual community groups of up to 25 people.


The Cafe-Bar space is based downstairs and features a bar, kitchen, art and a range of versatile seating options. It is well lit with the trains passing underneath our premises. We accept reservations for up to 25 people in this space, and you can book a table here.

Full & Exclusive Venue Hire

Because sometimes one room isn’t enough.

For events that require exclusive use of our premises or you wish to book all of our rooms, please contact us directly for prices by submitting our room enquiry form.
