Hire out INDIE

Café Indiependent is versatile, flexible and very accommodating. But don’t just trust us – please make sure you check out some of our wonderful reviews on Facebook (there are far too many for us to have faked)! Spread across four floors in a 10,000 square foot building, we can cater for a vast array of different sorts of event.

Café Indiependent is a licensed premises. We’ve hosted Weddings, Christenings, Adoption Parties, Birthday Parties and Funerals. But, we’re not just a place where your event takes place. We get involved. We’ll work with you to keep the costs down and the fun factor up. We’ll get to know you, your plans and your guests in the process. We are not your typical staid, beige, boring empty room for hire. An event at Café Indiependent is an event with character. So we’d always recommend that you pop in to get a feel for the place first.

Because events differ so greatly and we’re committed to offering great value, there are no strictly set prices for venue hire. But there are no nasty surprises either. Get in touch with your ideas and needs and we’ll happily work with you to make sure your event is all you want, at an affordable price.

We have a high quality program of cultural events – from gigs, to comedy, theatre, film, spoken word, burlesque, podcast and poetry. We’ve established a national reputation for looking after artists well and providing an uplifting, lively and safe atmosphere. We’re happy to deliver events ourselves or through partnerships with high quality promoters. We’re proud that the Café is able to cater for international touring bands. All this will hopefully make sense to regular users of the Café. If you haven’t been yet, then perhaps the following information will be useful…

Situated in Scunthorpe, just five minutes from the M180 and 20 minutes from the M18, Café Indiependent is the region’s most exciting venue; perfect for hosting conferences and events. Despite the building’s size, we are a 220 capacity venue.



We have the following general areas:

The Entrance level: Where children and families tend to congregate. Perfect for childrens parties, general catch ups, impromptu sing-a-longs by the piano and general mischief. Anybody wanting to use this area for a meeting should kindly let us know in advance but there is absolutely no charge for community groups or use of the space.

The Mezzanine: This is a flexible space available for hire or exclusive use. Suitable for intimate events, acoustic music, spoken word and comedy nights. There is no charge for community groups seeking exclusive use of this space.

The Basement: The Gig Venue. Industry touring standard PA system and 220 capacity music venue. We have the finest sound engineers and pride ourselves on the quality of the system. We also have a genial, lively crowd that have given Scunthorpe a strong name in the music scene. Down here, it’s dark, it’s fun and something you’ll remember forever is bound to happen.

The Upstairs Upstairs: The Exhibition Space. An extremely large area with a ‘New York warehouse loft’ sort of vibe. The space can be divided up by our set of very large portable exhibition walls, for gallery style exhibiting. We can also provide bar facilities for an Opening Night or similar event up there.
