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.

Ad campaign at Lewes Football Club

We thought we'd post a picture of our visit to Lewes Football Club (The Rooks) at the weekend. We've done a 'trade swap' with Lewes FC giving The Rooks a poster on our wall opposite the train station.

The club is very close to our facility in Lewes & is one of the only clubs where you can drink beer (Harveys) whilst enjoying a match.

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.

It's anticipated that approximately 25,000 fans will visit Lewes over the weekend - Self Storage Space is located directly opposite the train station so we're very close to all the action. 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.
