A space for creatives and entrepreneurs to come together and be part of a supportive and inspiring community.
White Space Alresford is the brainchild of entrepreneur Holly Budge. She had dreamt of finding a beautiful clean space to facilitate her own creative endeavours for a long time, including a showcase for her award-winning exhibition, How Many Elephants. Holly spotted the huge potential of The Old Chapel, with its unique character and historic features and realised her vision by transforming it into this light and airy blank canvas event space. One of the highlights of the transformation for Holly was finding a time capsule, hidden in one of the wall cavities, containing the Hampshire Observer dated March 7th 1896.

"White Space Alresford is a rare find - a beautiful studio with all of the amenities nearby that you need to run a shoot but essentially a blank canvas to create with. Beautiful natural light fills the space, and ensures you don’t need to bring stacks of kit if your shoot doesn’t demand it. We shot a cookery book there using natural light - it held all our set ups, plus can be easily styled to resemble a chic kitchen or living space. It is a peaceful, atmospheric studio which should appeal to a broad range of photographers & their clients.We are so happy to have found it. Also, killer coffee in the deli nearby…! ”

"Interestingly it was images on Instagram which first attracted me to White Space Alresford, I loved the sense of uncluttered, soaring space. Seeing the building in person did not disappoint: it is striking without being intimidating. Holding Muddy Hants' award-winners drinks there for fifty people worked perfectly, although there is room for many more. The acoustics were a joy, no need for a microphone, and true to my first Insta-impression, the white background led to incredibly striking images. Thank you Leela and Holly."
