Corah Works venue information
An old hosiery factory/warehouse converted into an events space whilst still embracing the industrial look and feel as if it was still in operation way back in the late 1800s.
With 2 large bar areas and the option to have 2 separate spaces in the venue divided across the middle, it makes it a truly flexible and versatile space which can cater for many applications.
Working with numerous big brands within the Leicester music scene, The Corah Works has seen a steady rise in Nightclub events ranging from commercial live Rock to underground Bass House and DnB and Live comedy events through to Fashion shows complete with catwalk!
In 1865 Nathaniel’s Corah’s grandson, Edwin Corah, laid the foundation stone for the St Margaret’s Works. It was designed by Leicester architect William Jackson and built on a four acre site in the shadow of St Margaret’s Church (between what is now Vaughan Way and the River Soar). At the time it was the largest factory of its kind in Leicester. It had a vast range of north lit workshops running down to an engine house, with a 145 foot chimney, near the river.
The following year Edwin’s sister, Jennie, started the large 50 horsepower beam engine which powered the 50 rotary machines, 47 circulars and 77 sewing machines in the St Margaret’s Works. Twenty eight hand frames were also still in use for high quality work. The beam engine was made by Messrs. Joseph Ryde and Gimson & Co. of Leicester. The company commemorated the opening of the St Margaret’s Works with an Inaugural Fete in 1866 for employees and friends.
