Hire the Level Centre

LEVEL is one of Derbyshire’s best kept cultural secrets, tucked away in the village of Rowsley right opposite Peak Village, this award-winning building opened as a contemporary arts centre in 2008.

LEVEL is open year-round, with a packed programme of visual art exhibitions and digital installations, alongside artists residencies and creative workshops.

Designed to be accessible, light floods through the building’s 60 windows, making this a stunning creative space for visual, digital and performing arts. There’s a corridor Gallery Space that’s used for visual art exhibitions including a public open call each summer, a large Event Space, Digital Space, meeting room, kitchen and separate art block.

Alongside our impressive spaces, LEVEL is also home to an array of digital technology and equipment which may be available to hire depending on other projects.

Room Layouts

I just wanted to thank you for hosting our team for our annual development day!

The team were exceptionally welcoming – nothing was too much trouble. The building was suitable for our team of 15, with access to a comfortable kitchen/lounge area and the main room, which we used for our development activities. The team at Level Centre had laid out the room in anticipation of our needs and had prepared for any audio/visual equipment, we may have had use for. I found the design and presentation of the spaces appealing, clean and well considered. It was also wonderful to have access to the exhibitions in place – which enriched our experience.

As a small company looking for an inspirational space to engage and activate our team, we found Level Centre to be perfect – cost effective, suitable and with convienent amenities such as free local parking and a few nice pubs close by for us to toast a great day spent together.

I would without hesitation, recommend Level Centre for any teams/groups looking for a quiet and inspiring space to hold away days etc. I am so pleased I found this little hidden gem!
