What is Melton Space?

Melton Space is a non-profit community workshop - Our aim is to provide a welcoming, social and creative workshop space that is equipped for a broad range of activities. It is a space to meet, make, fix, create and share ideas & resources.

Melton Space is closed to the public during lockdown but the Cafe is planning to stay open for take-away food & drink. Please follow the advice with all things distance, sanitiser & masks - Thank you for all your support! :-)

Where is Melton Space?

Melton Space Cafe and Country Park Visitor Centre is at the end of Wymondham Way, Melton Mowbray, and we are very grateful for the support of Melton Borough Council for supporting us at this venue.

When is Melton Space?

We have an open day for visitors every Wednesday from 10am until 7pm - Come and meet people and have a look about! Plenty of members are usually there on a Wednesday - it is like our weekly social gathering too.

Members can access the space at ANYTIME by arrangement, as we have limited number of keys at the moment.

What sort of things will happen in the Space?

It's the members of the Space (and that hopefully includes you!) that decide what goes on. Some facilities and ideas include:

  • Woodworking tools
  • IT workshop facilities
  • Laser cutter - INSTALLED!
  • Good selection of hand tools
  • Sewing machines / Overlocker
  • 3D printing facilities
  • Electronics workstations
