Testimonials

Lauren & Gavin
“What attracted us to Lightspace was the industrial chic and funky feel that set it aside from any other venue we had looked at from Noosa down to Byron and everywhere in between. It was such an amazing contrast for the romantic styling by White + White Weddings and we could not have been happier, not only with how it all turned out on the day, but all of our dealings with Lightspace right from the beginning (including the many, many times I re-visited on monthly showcase nights hahaha).
Everyone who attended on the day said it was an amazing venue and some said they felt they had been transported to a lofty warehouse in NYC, and how it was so unique and quintessentially “us”!
Gosh, just typing about it makes me want to do it all again! Take care and THANK YOU for EVERYTHING!”

Chelsea & Peter
Thank you SO much for an amazing time on Saturday! It was epic. So much fun!

Mark & Jamie
“Thank you for the wonderful backdrop for our amazing November wedding.  We had a fabulous day!”

Lara & Todd
“Just a quick email to say a massive thank you for everything that you and the team at Lightspace did for our wedding a few weeks ago.  Our night turned out amazing and we couldn’t have asked for anything better.  I still cant believe how perfect the weather was!
The venue looked amazing, and am so happy that we chose Lightspace.  Thanks again for being so helpful, and accommodating to all of our requests and questions. “

Sara & Nick

“We were absolutely thrilled with how our wedding turned out at Lightspace and all our guests were very impressed with the venue.”

* Did you know we offer fantastic rates for Friday and Sunday weddings? Your friends get the day off, you get hitched in style and have some spare change leftover to spend on the honeymoon. It’s win, win, win! Please ask us for information.

Can I supply my own food and beverage?

We are a licensed venue so drinks must be purchased via Lightspace.  This will be via a pre-paid package or on consumption bar (we have some amazing selections at fantastic prices).  Our caterers can provide the food and staff to serve the drinks, or we can hire the bar staff. Chin chin!

What is the capacity of the venue?

Lightspace 1+2 can host up to 500 cocktail style, 400 theatre style or 250 for sit-down dining. The spaces can be further divided for more intimate events using drapes we have onsite.  The bar lounge (Space 2) is perfect for 150 cocktail style, 100 theatre style or 60 for a sit-down dinner.

Will there be another party on the same evening?

Nope! We only ever host one event at a time, so once you book the space is all yours!

Parking

There is no onsite parking for events at Lightspace, only a loading bay within the venue. Street parking is fairly sparsely available during normal business hours but there are plenty of loading zones and metered parks directly out front. After normal business hours the streets are normally clear of vehicles, so there are normally plenty of spots available in Scanlan or Prospect Streets.

If you are hosting a small daytime event or meeting there is the possibility of arranging parking within the main space, which creates around a dozen carparks. Please ask us for details.

Can we play music?

Yes, we have equipment onsite so you can play your favourite tunes, or you can borrow our iPod... complete with a quality selection.

There is also a sound limit and we have neighbours across the road, so the volume is more than enough to have a great party, but not enough to wake the dead.

What AV equipment is included?

We have a projector (fixed into the ceiling in the bar lounge), 4 x 500 watt speakers, 2 mixers, 2 microphones and iPod jacks for you to use. Anything else will have to be hired in. We can recommend trusted suppliers if necessary.

How does setting up and packing down work at Lightspace?

Upon arrival the venue will be set with our onsite furniture and accessories. You can re-arrange if desired, or add your own touches. There is only one golden rule- 'DO NOT DRAG ANYTHING ON THE FLOOR' as the beautiful polished concrete scratches easily.

For most events the bump-out must occur the next morning as we can't load trucks and vans in the street late at night. There will be NO bump-out via the front door after 10pm, some loading can occur via the back terrace (i.e; catering equipment) but this must be done as quietly as possibly as we have neighbours in close proximity.

What time will I have access to set-up?

This is normally arranged depending on the amount of set-up required and whether we have an event the previous night.

Can we bring in our own decorations?

You can customize Lightspace however you would like, providing that any existing decor is not damaged in the process. No nails, screws or glue may be used. Any onsite furniture that is removed has to be replaced at the end of the event or the next morning by arrangement.

Closing times?

As we have neighbours in close proximity all events must conclude by 11pm on Friday and Saturday nights, 10pm otherwise.

Are there any hotels nearby?

The Emporium Hotel is a brilliant option only two minutes walk from the venue, otherwise Limes or Rydges Hotels are approximately ten minutes. Breakfree Apartments on Brookes Street is good for those on a budget. Otherwise we're only 5-10 minutes from the city via taxi.

I'm ready to book! What's next?

You may make a tentative booking at any time, however the date is only secure with the payment of our deposit fee, which varies according to the venue hire.

Cancellation

In the event of cancellation or change of date all payments made will be forfeited, so please make sure you're ready to go when you lay your money down.
