Quay Arts is a beautiful converted 19th-Century brewery warehouse complex at the head of the River Medina in the centre of Newport. The exact address is Sea St, Newport, PO30 5BD.
We have secured a private hire of the whole building – but you can expect to enter via the terrace entrance on the left-hand side. We will provide signage to help you find us.
Travel and parking
A large car park and plenty of street parking are available right next to the venue. If you’d like to take the bus – Newport bus station is about a 10 minute walk (or 5 minutes if you need to pee). Taxis are available on a Friday night, but we recommend you book.
Quay Arts follow all current COVID-related government guidelines. The venue will be ventilated with access to the open decking outside the Quay.
We also recommend that guests take a COVID test the night before, just to be safe.
We will not have a strict ‘sit down agenda’, you’ll be free to roam around Quay Arts in your high heels and Oxfords. However, here’s some guidance timings:
- 18:45 Doors open
- 19:00 Buffet food available
- 19:30 to 20:00 Speech & birthday video showcase in the theatre
- 20:00 to 22:00 Terror Room entertainment open upstairs
- 00:30 Event closure
(Until doors open)
We labelled the event as ‘black tie themed’ and shortly realised that this can mean a lot of things to different people! We certainly don’t want you to feel pressured in any way.
So, to clarify – we’d love to see you rock your best dresses and suits. But, if you’d like to go smart-casual, we will still bump your elbows.

Food and drink
As it’s our 3rd birthday, every guest will receive 3 drinks tokens upon arrival. These can be exchanged for any soft or alcoholic drink at the bar. If you’d like to continue the party after spending your tokens, the bar will be open until midnight. Cheers!
We have opted for amazing IOW-themed ‘Grazing Boards’ (example image above), which will be available from 7pm. You can also expect some sweet treats to be brought out later in the evening.
Dietary requirements submitted via the RSVP forms will be catered for where possible (on separate boards). However… in a party environment cross-contamination can easily happen. Therefore, we can’t promise any food to be allergen-free.
We are fortunate enough to have the team from Terror Island bring a taster of their award-winning attraction to NOSY’s birthday. If you’re brave enough, venture upstairs and follow the signs (and screams) to the ‘Terror Room’.
Doors will be open from 8 – 10pm. Inside you’ll experience some pop-up horror-themed magic. Rumour has it that this magician snacks on light bulbs and has a tendency for lots more horrendous endeavours! Those who dare to enter will have a chance to win tickets to the full attraction happening at Blackgang Chine between the 22nd – 31st October 2021.
Our friends from Heroes organised a Virtual Reality Headset for the party. You can try various games which, even without a few Proseccos, might just blow your mind!
NOSY Showcase Room
To celebrate the wonderful relationships we’ve formed with our clients, we have prepared a ‘NOSY showcase room’ in the downstairs area. Make sure you pay it a visit!
