Frequently Asked Questions
How do I find out about upcoming events?
The Flying Dutchman is a private venue for hire and most events hosted here are often marketed by each individual promoter to their own base following. Where we are asked to do so, we will publish public events that are open for all to attend on our Facebook page here.
Do you have set opening hours?
We don't have set opening hours. We only open when there are events happening.
WHAT IS YOUR CAPACITY?
The space can hold up to 300 people over 2 floors at full capacity.
CAN I BOOK ONLY 1 FLOOR OF THE SPACE?
Yes, but this depends on the type of event you are looking to host. Get in touch and let us know what you have in mind and we'd be happy to let you know what we can and can't accommodate.
IS THERE A PA / SOUND SYSTEM AVAILABLE OR DO I NEED TO HIRE MY OWN?
We do have a basic PA and sound system available. You can view this when you come see the space, but if the set up we have doesn't suit you, you're welcome to hire in your own off course keeping in mind the limitations and capabilities of the space. If you want to rent a PA for the lower floor, we advise you to contact Richard of Chili Sounds at 07973500651 or Richard of Void Sounds at 07791653226, they regularly provide PAs for the venues' most popular dance events and know what works in the space.
What kind of events do you host?
We host many types of events including but not limited to, dance nights, art exhibitions, workshops, alternative events and all manners of private events and functions.
How do I get in touch about hiring the venue for my own event?
Please fill in the venue hire form here giving us as much info as possible about your event and we'll get back in touch with you as soon as possible with more info and to arrange a viewing in person.
