With news of the latest newcomer to the bustling Baltic Triangle roster, Getintothis Craig MacDonald predicts exciting times ahead.
The team behind Baltic Triangle venue Constellations has revealed details of its new events space, Hinterlands, with the venue set to open its doors this year in the same building currently housing TUSK and Royal Standard.
The creative team’s new venture will be set in the bustling hub of Cain’s Brewery Village on Mann St and will join the Baltic Market in the ever growing creative district.
Consisting of three separate spaces, each will offer varied packages for those wanting to make use of the venue.
The sprawling complex will contain a Event Hall, the Eclipse Theatre and an Annex, with the venue striving to include local community groups and businesses, with the likes of Baltic Creative having space within.
Talking about their new venture, marketing director Nicholas Baskerville said: “Its a new space for new events whilst staying true to what makes the Baltic special; its creative, industrious and pioneering approach”.
Coming three years since Constellations become a pillar of the Baltic Triangle, Hinterlands will be able to cater for both small and large scale events, with the new venue able to accommodate up to 1200 people.
Hinterlands will be joining neighbours the likes of Baltic Market, Ghetto Golf, Ryde Coffee and Dockleaf Bar on the fringes of the Baltic Triangle area.
Consisting of a 365 square metre Event Hall, a hand-crafted mezzanine bar, a 231 square metre Eclipse Theatre space and smaller breakout meeting space for a wide range of uses.
Hinterlands will host weddings, parties, conferences, galas, away-days & team building, food & drink events, photo and film shoots and brand activations. Technology will play a big part in the venue’s design; with a focus on creative, digital, retail and entertainment uses.
“We’re approaching this project with the same affection and independence as Constellations. It’s a new space for new events whilst staying true to what makes the Baltic special; its creative, industrious and pioneering approach. We’re incredibly excited to open our doors in 2018. We can’t wait to welcome you with open arms.” Nicholas added:
With news of Sound City heading to the area for their 2018 festival, it is not yet known if Hinterlands will become part of their plans, but with organisers hoping that the venue will provide a unique proposition for live events and festivals, who knows what might happen.
