Night time Launches and Parties
Paintworks has an exciting after dark atmosphere and we've hosted some really memorable product launches and award ceremonies in recent years. When the space is lit up at night it looks stunning and creates an impressive and high impact backdrop for any important company occasion or celebration.
Our in-house caterers will ensure your event is truly special, we use Relish for anything over 50 delegates, and Bocabar and Kate’s Kitchen for smaller events. Working with the finest and often locally sourced ingredients, dishes have a homecooked and wholesome flavour that's hard to come by within business catering. All menus can be tailored to clients’ needs, download sample menus for inspiration.
AV and Equipment
Our recommended AV supplier, locally based Pytch can supply staging, screens, projectors and sound equipment at excellent rates. This can usually be booked in for you directly by Paintworks Events staff and quotes for all equipment can be given immediately on request. It is also fine to bring in your own equipment, Pytch can provide technicians to ensure smooth running.
If you'd like to discuss your AV needs, let us know.
