We love this Secret Space because…
Not just because of its location and size, the option to be able to camp – or glamp – on site, the wide range of challenging but fun activities and experiences that the team at Hillside can organise, oh and of course, the great beer! We love it because it once housed a big red tractor, plus delegates for a product launch; now that really is a vast, flexible Space.
This light, bright, industrial Space is not just about the proverbial p***-up in a brewery, though of course, it is hard to escape the natural connection. Standing proudly in the hills on the edge of the Cotswolds and the Forest of Dean, Hillside Brewery provides more than just a Space in which to hold an event.
The ground floor of the purpose-built barn has a bar, stage, screen, and AV-equipment. The mezzanine level, with comfy sofas, a TV, and a ping-pong table also has access to an outdoor raised terrace with stunning views of the glorious countryside. It is, however, the use of the surrounding 40-acres of farmland that adds a further dimension to what is on offer here.
Team Building Space
The barn is comfortably able to seat up to 250 people and with parking for up to 100 cars, it has the capacity and flexibility to host team building days, conferences, corporate training and product launches. The bespoke team building days are created to make the most of the environment with pursuits – indoor and outdoor – designed to bring your team together through mentally challenging games that translate into practical theory back in the workplace.
If it is a stag or a hen-do you are planning, then aside from the obvious option to enjoy a brewery tour and beer tasting as part of your event, interesting and tasty though they are, why not have even more fun with experiences such as Battlezone Archery, Bubble Football, cooking lessons and much more; just ask.
Of course, not every occasion needs added adrenaline, the barn is also a great blank canvas Space to make your own for weddings, celebrations and anniversaries.
