A new co-working hub is set to open in Nottingham’s historic Lace Market.

Works Social will open in a refurbished four-storey, Grade II listed building.

The new space is aimed at independent workers and small businesses, and offers communal desk space, hot-desking areas, shared facilities and personal lockers, and a chill-out area and bar.

“Community spirit underpins Works Social’s core ethos. Our manifesto is about promoting ideas, enterprise and exchange - working amidst a variety of skills, ventures and projects can inspire far more ideas than working in isolation,” said virtual assistant and Works Social co-founder Lise Garner Morgan.

The space has potential for 40 dedicated desks and a range of virtual membership and hot-desking options.

The local collective of entrepreneurs behind the space have been renovating for 12 months and have transformed the former Lace Works building into a co-working area.

Fellow co-founder and freelance digital designer Han van Oudheusden added: "Like every community, we understand that the needs of our members are going to be diverse. That’s why we offer a variety of membership packages from a simple virtual address through to 24/7 dedicated office space.

Works Social said it will open in early 2019.
