Established Commercial Companies & Artists


This rate is for artists producing work to play in large scale venues for long runs, or who have received substantial financial support to make their work. It is also for commercial companies hiring spaces for training sessions or meetings.


If you are a small or mid-scale artist or charity, but you are charging more than £10 per day per participant for a course you are running at Creative Workspace, we consider you to be a commercial artist.


If you book for consecutive dates, overnight storage of any kit in the space is included in your hire fee.

Theatre Programming

The Selfish Giant by Soap Soup Theatre & Tessa Bide Productions

Above Bounds Theatre Collective

At Creative Workspace we programme theatre 4-6 months in advance.

We currently programme early years (0-3 years) and family (4+) theatre and have a loyal audience meaning our theatre performances usually sell very well. 

We sometimes programme theatre on fees, depending on our funding. Shows bought in on a fee are sold at £3 per person (adult/children) in order to ensure these shows are accessible for our immediate community.


We are also open to box office split arrangement on a 70/30 in favour of the company, and tickets on a box office split are sold at £7/£5.  When possible, we encourage companies to offer a post-show workshop in addition to a performance, in order to deepen the engagement opportunities for our audiences.


Usually, we programme work we have seen previously or shows by comapanies whose work we are familiar with. If you would like to be considered as part of our ongoing theatre programme, we are happy to hear from theatre artists that are performing or tour the South West. We often travel to local Fringe and Theatre festivals in addition to conventional theatre spaces and other arts centres to watch work, so let us know where you are performing in the region and we will do our best to attend.

To contact us about performing at Creative Workspace please email Paul on bristolcreativeworkspace@gmail.com Please include a Tour Pack, links to reviews you may have and/or show trailers.

Venue Tech Spec:
We have an in-house PA system and blinds to black out the main space.
From the Spring 2020 we aim to have a set of touring lights. Until then companies can bring their own touring lights. Please send information of any touring lights you plan to bring.
