Kabantu means 'of the people', stemming from the South African philosophy of Ubuntu: 'I am who I am because of who we all are'. This acclaimed ensemble aim to 'celebrate the space where different cultures meet' by bringing audiences music that fuses global influences with jazz improvisation and virtuosic reminders of their classically-trained backgrounds.
We offer various options of flexible meeting space. From casual to formal meetings, we have it covered. We can seat 110 cinema style in the main atrium or 70 cabaret style.

The outside space is currently under construction and will repurpose shipping containers as studio spaces for local creatives and businesses. This aims to create a unique creative space for people to collaborate, learn and build relationships with like-minded people. The space provided has given local creatives a perfect venue to showcase talent whilst building a community and heritage. It shows great promise for a whole host of events driven by ambitious, creative minds.
