We are excited to be offering our amazing facilities for freelancers, those people working flexibly, creative industries, charities, corporate partners and regular users.
What should I expect?
For your first visit, you will need to arrive at our Box Office for your hire induction.
If you have already completed your hire Induction, please arrive at our visitor’s entrance at the rear of the Theatre building. This entrance is accessible by level access on the Roman Wall side of our building. On arrival, you will be greeted by a member of the team who will sign you in and show you to your Work Space. On your first visit, you will be given a guided tour of the facilities and a formal induction to talk through the use of the workspace. You will only need to complete this induction on your first visit.
Your Induction will include, but is not limited to:
• Familiarisation with building and facilities
• Office rules
• Printing and Photocopying
• Optional Phonelines
• Storage for personal belongings
• Fire Safety protocols
We take single day bookings or you can also book multiple days up to three months in advance. The day starts at 10am and finishes at 6pm.
When booking your desk, please select if you would like a desk with a PC or a desk which you can set-up your own laptop. With both options you will have access to our fast broadband and optional extras including: printer, phone, postage.
You are welcome to drink at your desk, but we ask that eating takes place in our Green Room downstairs.
You will be in an open plan office with the Mercury staff team as well as the hustle and bustle of a working theatre. The main rehearsal room is next door to the office so always has a buzz of exciting things going on and sometimes can be heard.
If you would like to hire our meeting room, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or speak to a member of the team on the day for any future bookings.
You are welcome to do any Zoom/ Team meetings at your desk, but we ask for you to wear headphones. We have to make you aware that, when busy, the background noise in our office can be a little loud for video calls. You may wish to book a meeting room for these or speak to the hires team about alternative options available to you.
You can also have a meeting in our Café/ Bar downstairs where you will benefit from 10% off. Just show the barcode on your booking ticket and your visitors lanyard.
Printing and photocopying:
At the time of booking, you will be invited to add printing credit to your booking. During your induction a printing account will be created for you to use during your visits. Printing credits are valid until used.
Dedicated Phone lines:
During your induction, our team will discuss options for use of a dedicated business phone line which is accessible via a mobile app or our desktop phones. Phone packages include UK landline and mobile calls only. International calls are charged at a premium. Phone lines are bookable for a minimum of 6-month contracts.
As a hirer, postage is available from our box office which can be paid for via cash or card. (Please purchase your own envelopes)
How to book:
Please book your workspace for the day/s that you require below. The normal office day is from 10-6pm and on your first visit you will receive an induction by a member of the team on how to use the facilities.
Please select if you would like to have a PC available on your desk or if you would prefer to bring in your own laptop and use one of our clear desks.
If you would like to have the option of printing/ photocopying while working or parking at St Mary’s car park, please add on this package while booking your desk.
