Village Point Turns 3 Years Old
This June, Village Point passed its third year in business. We’re thrilled to have been a part of so many special occasions, and to have served thousands of customers who’ve passed through our doors. We’re fast approaching 100 reviews with an average rating of 4.8 out of 5, a testament to our team, venue, and customers who’ve allowed us to be a part of their celebration. With this in mind, we would like to again extend our thanks to all of our guests, customers, and team.
A few words from our events customers so far:
“Well, what can I say about these guys… not enough space on here to recommend them so highly. From start to finish they were brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble… Thank you, we had THE most perfect wedding.” – Marie & Mike
“We had our wedding at Village Point in May and we couldn’t have been happier with the day… we highly recommend this venue, couldn’t ask for a better place to spend our first few hours as a married couple.” – Chris & Lucy
“We hired the Village Point Ballroom for our wedding reception recently and had an absolutely brilliant time. The venue is stunning and the staff were all fantastic… Thank you to all involved in our wedding day. It was perfect and you helped make a day we will never forget.” – David & Ffion
“We had my husband’s birthday do at Village Point – it was the second event we’ve held here as we were so impressed with the first event we held here… I couldn’t recommend Village Point highly enough and we will certainly be using them again in the future!” – Nathalie H
What’s Happening With The Redevelopment?
Alongside our predominantly nighttime events business, we also have a daytime-focussed coworking space called “The Hub.” It’s a shared office space with Dedicated Desks and Hot Desks, ideal for freelancers, small businesses, and entrprenuers who need a flexible workspace with a sense of community. Since launching, we’ve watched our membership grow along with the coworking industry globally, and it’s started to become a core part of our business.
In 2018, we announced some upcoming changes to expand the coworking space element and introduce a new name for the business to better reflect what we’ve become (in full, “The Forum Coworking & Event Space”). While both of those things are still planned, we’ve recast our development schedule and will be phasing in both as part of a more gradual transition. The overwhelming response to the pre-launch marketing campaign culminated in a full waiting list for Hot Desk, Dedicated Desk, and Office memberships and has also allowed us to get an understanding of what coworking customers want, and right now that is more Dedicated Desks and Hot Desks along with a lounge-type breakout area.
So what to expect? We’ll first be first rolling out the expanded coworking space and business lounge area into our smaller space – The Lodge. This will be for our existing coworking members to use, test out, and provide feedback. Once we feel we’ve got the design and service elements right, we’ll be launching it to the wider public.
