The Hat Factory

The Hat Factory

The Hat Factory is well known as an arts centre for its theatre, dance and live music programme but can also be hired out for conferences and private functions.

With flexible spaces of various sizes to suit every need, The Hat Factory can accommodate everything from talks to team building, conferences to craft fairs, and presentations to product launches. The venue also hosts several very successful weekly classes from street dance to yoga.

The Hat Factory can offer intimate conference room spaces for one to one meetings or flexible spaces for formal presentations for up to 100 people.
Technical assistance is available on request as well as equipment support, box office and bars. Catering is provided by the wonderful on site cafe, directly to your room. The venue also offers the flexibility to hire several spaces as either breakout rooms or to host several activities at once.

Conferencing equipment is available on request; including digital projectors, screen, flipchart stands, TV and DVD player. Studio 1 is also set up for wide screen film showings or digital presentations. Radio microphones, theatre lighting and sound are all available on request and operated by the superb in house technical team.

The Basement Lounge can be hired on evenings and weekends for private parties or functions with a stage area large enough for a DJ or small band and purpose built bottle bar.

The Hat Factory is conveniently located in Luton town centre. Less than 5 minutes away from ample pay and display parking and Lutons’ main line railway links to London, Bedford and beyond.
