Hatters Space

Hatters Space is a Warwickshire County Council establishment, administered through its Early Intervention Service.

Its purpose is to provide safe and appropriate facilities which are available for hire by local agencies, groups and individuals within the objectives of the Early Intervention Service.

There are a variety of local agencies/organisations who have come to use us on a regular basis as a venue for their training events, or delivery of their services.
