The Fumbally Stables is the event space of The Fumbally with a focus on culture and education – we host our own workshops and events and also offer private room hire and collaborations with outside groups.


The building is an old 18th century stables that was originally used by John Busby, one of the local distillers in the Blackpitts area. Since then it has been adapted for multiple uses from grain store to meat factory, a bakery and finally a photography studio in the late 1980s. The Fumbally took it on in 2015 as somewhere for us to develop ideas and projects outside of the cafe confines, and since then it has grown into a much more all-encompassing space that is open to many diverse activities but keeps food and community at its core.

The building can be engaged with in a number of different ways. We do direct hires, where you rent one of the rooms and the rest is up to you. Alternatively we can take care of your event, whether it’s a private dinner, workshop, meeting room that requires catering and management or community event that just needs someone to welcome people on the door.
