The Door 84 space is also used by other Organisations and Charities, you can find out more about each of our current licensees below.

Having a variety of organisations and charities based alongside Door 84 means we have a lot of information, expertise and support that is accessible, which only works to make the Centre stronger.
This has also allowed Door 84 to create fundamental links that have enabled new projects to begin; recently Door 84 and Biomation have come together to run the Upfaders at Door 84 Youth Music Project.

Some organisations rent space on a permanent basis, whereas others use the space on a more ad-hoc basis. We also offer one off bookings for parties, conferences and other events.
