Our brand new Co-working space is situated on the first floor of the Minories, a former Tudor mansion located in the heart of Colchester’s city centre. The Minories is famously known for its art gallery, hosting regular exhibitions and events helping to bring the community together. In addition to this, nestled in the beautiful garden, is ‘The Commons’ a community-owned co-operative cafe, serving up great food made from local produce.
Our studio comprises four rooms including; our office space, a meeting room, a relaxed working area and a light and airy garden room which contains full-sized desks and ergonomic chairs. We are launching initially with two types of membership for co-working. Our Community Membership is designed for people who may need to use the space for one or two visits a month and/or want the community benefits of being a member. Plus there will be an Unlimited Membership designed for people who want to use the space whenever they like within our opening hours, ideal for someone looking for a welcoming and friendly place to work at least once a week. The core offer listed below will be available to all members and you will have the option to switch between each membership if you wish.
Free tea and pod coffee, along with access to cooled filtered water for the summer months, are available in our little kitchenette.
We offer membership to The Commons cafe which includes 10% discount, located here at The Minories, along with other discounts for local venues.
Invites to social gatherings including breakfast club, team lunches and occasional after work drinks.
Our studio space is located at the bottom of Colchester high street, just minutes to shops, cafes and public transport links.
The application process…
We will be opening officially on the 1st Feb with the space being available for Phase 1 signups from the middle of January. Numbers will be limited, however, a second batch will be released in the coming months once we work out optimal member numbers. We want the space to have an atmosphere but not be too busy that members don’t have a space to work; we will be experimenting with this balance. We welcome any feedback and will be developing the space and the offer to members collaboratively.
If you would like to see the space in person or simply meet us so you know who you would be sharing the space with, we’re happy to arrange a viewing with no obligation to join. Please do drop us a line for more information on availability and more options.
