The Coachwerks


The Coachwerks provides artists, craftspeople and makers with studio space. It is home to a thriving community of potters, woodworkers, stone carvers, brewers and musicians. There is a recording studio, a community darkroom, an art gallery and a tech hub. The Coachwerks has a bar and a large communal space which is used for events, meetings of local groups, classes and workshops. The space is also used for pop up vegan food events.

Here are some of the people that make The Coachwerks such a vibrant and energetic space…

Bartlebys Brewery is a vegan micro-brewery. They are a workers’ cooperative who run a bar and host regular events in the main space. Delicious ales and stouts direct from the source. Also available to take home in small or larger quantities.

Untitled-4Hail Seitan is a creative vegan collective that hosts a pop up restaurant and events. Experimental vegan food at its best. And the chips aren’t bad either!

Mutual Aid In Sussex is a network being developed in Brighton and the surrounding area to facilitate mutual aid between co-operatives, other types of social enterprise, small ethical business, community groups, and other like-minded people, by providing a free platform where mutual aid and support can be more easily achieved through face-to-face meet-ups and online conversations. Meetings are held at The Coachwerks at 7:30pm on the third Wednesday of every month.
