New cinema The Depot opening in Lewes

Local cinema charity Lewes Community Screen is about to open The Depot next door to Self Storage Space in Lewes.

Actor Martin Freeman will officially open the cinema on Thursday 25th May 2017. Actor Mark Rylance will come to Lewes the following day, on Friday May 26th, to launch the Depot's community and education strategy.

The new cinema looks very impressive - the photo above was taken from our rooftop on top of Self Storage Space. The cinema is very high spec with all the 'bells and whistles' comprising three screens including 140 and 130 seat auditoriums, very smart restaurant, cafe and bar.

The new privately funded cinema reportedly cost a cool £8 million to construct. The Lewes community have desperately needed a purpose built cinema since the 1970s. The project is the brainchild of Robert Senior and Carmen Slijpen (Architect) who obtained the land from Harvey's Brewery. Self Storage Space is proudly sponsoring a seat for 10 years in the Auditorium.

What a result! Lewes FC 1 - Harlow Town 0

Self Storage Space in Lewes are delighted with the result from their sponsorship game between Lewes FC and Harlow Town. A fantastic 1-nil win for Lewes FC.

Almost all the first-half chances fell to the Rooks, then 46 seconds into the second half, Luke Blewden scored a fantastic goal. Luke's outstanding achievement resulted in being given man of the match.

Below is an after match photo of Luke with the Mascots and Andrew Gill from Self Storage Space in Lewes.

This Saturday 1st November, Lewes FC play Harlow Town at the Dripping Pan. Self Storage Space in Lewes proudly supports The Rooks. The Dripping Pan is one of the only stadiums where you can drink beer (Harveys Best) whilst watching footy.

Customer Access during Mumford & Sons Gig in Lewes. 19th and 20th July 2013

If you haven't heard about Mumford & Sons playing in Lewes on 19th & 20th July 2013 then you must have been living under a rock! We're extremely excited that such a high profile, popular and talented band have chosen to play in our little town.

Station Road will have limited access over the weekend. Traffic, parking and taxis ranks are expected to temporarily change over the weekend to best accomodate the high volume of visitors.

We advise all our customers who wish to visit their self storage unit to avoid the weekend if possible - ideally visit on Thursday 18th, morning of Friday 19th or on Monday 22nd July. As usual, the Lewes branch will be open on Friday and Saturday so please call us before travelling if you have any questions.
