Venue hire

Preston & Thornbury

Bridge Darebin offers a range of spaces for you to hire including offices, training rooms, computer rooms, board rooms, large halls and two commercial kitchens.

With locations in Preston and Thornbury, you have the flexibility to hire by the hour, the day or as an ongoing or permanent booking, depending on your needs.

Our aim is to be able to share our spaces with the people of Darebin and as such our fees reflect an accessible and competitive price point. All income raised via venue hire goes back into funding our work within the community, so by booking with us, your fees have a direct impact locally.

We have additional equipment available for hire – like a portable PA, projectors, screens and more – making your event or function easily arranged and facilitated.
