Our event space supports a variety of functions, such as exhibits, filming and photo shoots, pop-up business opportunities, multimedia performances, community activities, virtual streaming services, and more. Contact us if you are interested in renting our space.
Currently, The Cheshire is home to local multi-media artists and makers, creative entrepreneurs, and production groups, including: Gateway504 productions, wxxds.x, The Overachievers, and DJ Bo.
