Weston’s creative tech and digital co-working hub offers office space to creative tech and digital freelancers, micro and start-up businesses on flexible and low-risk terms. The introduction of a creative hub in the town centre provides space for small creative businesses to grow and develop.
We were awarded a £460,000 grant in 2016 from the West of England Local Enterprise Partnership to support the purchase and development of the creative hub.
Since then, the building has been purchased and refurbished offering a range of facilities, services and support to enable local entrepreneurs in the digital, technological and creative sectors. The next exciting phase will look to expand the building and double the available space, with an extra 4000 sq. ft. for sole traders, freelancers and small businesses.
Co-working space is let on a daily and monthly basis to freelancers, micro and start-up businesses on flexible and low-risk terms. Networking events and support are also available to members of The Stable, to cultivate their business success.
As well as the economic benefits of supporting start-up businesses, The Stable has helped reposition Weston as a well-connected, quality location, identified as a good place to live and work, with a distinct personality based around creative arts and culture.
The Stable has brought a new cultural dimension to the town centre, nurturing the creative talent already in the town and attracting new residents and businesses to relocate. This supports our bold ambition for Weston-super-Mare which focuses on increasing the number of people living in good quality housing, boosting the demand for shops and services, as well as expanding the town’s learning and leisure opportunities to create a more prosperous and vibrant town centre.
