Thanks again to you and your team for such a wonderful reception it was perfect and we and our guests loved it. Everyone has raved about the food your team produced. The Sportsworks was a hit too.

Just wanted to say a massive thank you for everything you did for our wedding on Saturday.

We had many compliments on the venue, the food, the volume of food and the very high level of service. Those little prawn dumplings were amazing.

Our wedding at Spotswood Pumping Station ran incredibly well on the night thanks to Eliza. Eliza was a huge help from the day she was appointed as our Event Coordinator and on the night was very busy and didn't stop working right until the end of the event. We would happily give Eliza as a coordinator 5 stars! Some costs were additional/unexpected plus we had quite a lapse in communication when our previous Event Coordinator left the company and no-one told us. Otherwise we had a good experience, and the venue looked amazing on the night.

Amazing, Amazing, Amazing! Such a great and unique space for such an amazing day. We did cocktail function and this worked well. The staff are super friendly at Whitecard (the venue organisers) and were accommodating for all our requirements. Would definitely recommend this venue for a unique and memorable event.

I can’t count how many of our guests were so surprised and amazed by the venue! Although I think that the majority of the guests and wedding party had been to Scienceworks in the past, seeing the Pumping Station at night and lit up (make sure you pay for the additional lighting- it was amazing) was just incredible. I must admit that we were worried about not having a menu tasting however the food was brilliant, and rather large servings as well. From a photography point of view, there were so many amazing photo opportunities – we would recommend the train in the playground for some fun photos. What really topped it off was the staff on the night – I cannot believe how many times the waiters made sure that I had eaten!

Hi Nikki, We love your feedback - thank you SO much! We think the extra lighting is MUST also! Thrilled to hear that you had such an amazing experience! Lauren - Museum Spaces
