Hold the Fort! Venue Hire

Newhaven Fort is a versatile and atmospheric venue with indoor and outdoor spaces available for hire. We have hosted a range of events including music festivals, theatre performances (indoors and out), lectures, art exhibitions, anniversary celebrations and birthday parties.  Daytime meetings can also be accommodated. Please visit our Meeting Rooms page for more details.

The Fort’s striking location and permanent exhibitions add a fascinating element to any event, providing guests with a unique backdrop and talking point to help fill in any lulls in activity.

Newhaven Fort is licensed for live music and dancing between 11am – 11pm, and is licensed to serve alcohol between 12noon and 11 pm, seven days a week.

Here you will find details of the spaces most often hired for events, but remember that the Fort has other, more unusual spaces, that may be more suited to your requirements. Please feel free to contact us on 01273 517622 or fortinfo@waveleisure.co.uk if you want to know more!
