Our facilities are blank canvases, you can create the atmosphere you want. All facilities can be custom tailored to your needs. 

There are so many possibilities:

  • set up a tent with live music and projection screens for a dynamic multimedia presentation
  • backlight the fort walls to highlight their distinct texture and emphasize their height
  • create paths illuminated by tea lights for an air of mystery and anticipation

Add in spectacular views of Halifax and its picturesque harbour and you have the perfect stage.
