The Venue

Quayside Terminal is a ‘dry hire’ venue which requires all function requirements including tables, seating, catering, security and audio visual equipment to be sourced externally. This allows hirees control over their dream wedding and other events, with the flexibility to make it your own.

Visit our Service Providers page for our list of preferred caterers, security, event management and audio/visual partners.
