What goes on outside of the room is as important as what goes on in the inside. This unique and flexible venue allows for indoor and outdoor communal spaces to work, relax, play, share, eat and drink


Content Partner
Drive the debate by sponsoring an element of the content mix. Opportunities include sponsoring the main stage, breakout or workshop session


Research Partner
Support independent research to be presented at the Festival of Place on topics such as how to design places that people dwell, transport futures and more


Pub Sponsor
At the heart of every great community is the local and the Festival of Place needs a landlord. Tobacco Dock incorporates a grand pub restored to its original early-1980s splendour. This will serve as an area for content, catering and a lively base for your organisation
