Rent a Space

Our Facility

Formerly a primary school, The Lantern has a range of facilities that can accommodate a variety of programs and events.

Revenues from our room rentals are used solely to help cover operational costs and subsidize peer support and community groups that are unable to pay.

If you have a program or event that helps build community, then you'll find space at The Lantern too!
