I don’t normally like to push commercial stuff here but The Fireworks in the Jewellery Quarter looks like an interesting setup. Situated in a former fire station they offer the usual office / studio space but really push the community aspect of the business. They offer “regular business-focused events and support” and, most intriguingly, limit the tenancies to one from a number of sectors, creating a group of companies that complement each other. Currently they have space for the following sectors: New media, Film and video production, Animation, E-marketing, PR, Brand strategists and Copywriters.

In an email co-founder Brett says: “Hopefully businesses will be able to support each other, collaborate and inspire – or maybe just gossip over a cup of coffee. Rents are low, and the leases are flexible so they are ideal for people who maybe work out of their bedroom or shed to take a first tentative step into ‘proper’ premises.”
