In line with the new COVID restrictions coming into effect from Thursday 05 November we will be closing our Spaces to the public and moving all of our delivery online.

The safety of our community is paramount and whilst we are devastated to be instructed to close spaces and cease events and activities that bring people together so soon after opening back up, we will do everything in our gift to ensure the safety of those that we work with, support, host and employ.

Events and Activities

Any events and activities programmed in our buildings for the rest of the year will sadly not be able to go ahead; ticket holders will be contacted and issued with refunds where necessary.

We will be moving as much of our delivery online as possible, so check out the range of webinars, virtual sessions and groups that we will be hosting that you as a Member can join and benefit from. To see the events calendar and book onto our online events simply sign into the Members area at

Accessing our Spaces for Members

Members who use co-work in our spaces (currently only available C-Space, Newquay and Ocean Studios, Plymouth) will still be able to access it for business purposes where this doesn’t contravene guidance from their own organisation, and where activities cannot be carried out from home. There will be additional hygiene measures in place and we will require everyone in our spaces to wear a mask at all times, unless seated at a desk or a table.

If you wish to use one of our work spaces during the next phase of restrictions please make sure you have had an induction and that you understand the COVID measures in place and how to practice social distancing in the building. If you haven’t had an induction please email and we will arrange for an online induction so that you can continue to use the space safely.
