Facility Hire

Venue hire is a tough task.  At Tees Barrage, we offer a range of great-value venues for you to use. Whether it’s for a company meeting, film location, or water facility for safety courses and competitions; we have what you need. 


Meeting space venue hire


Tees Barrage has several professional business spaces available for hire. We have meeting rooms with flexible seating options and up-to-date presentation equipment, as well as plenty of outdoor space. Our team also provides catering for meetings, which includes everything from tea and coffee to sit-down meals. All prepared on-site at our excellent The Barrage Café.


Safety training and watersport course venue hire


We’re home to two, world-standard white water courses — both available for you to hire. Often, people hire these courses for watersports competitions and displays due to their size, structure and high standard. But, the potential is huge for a variety of uses!

Emergency services including police forces, coastguards and fire brigades also use our white water courses to practice safety and rescue techniques. These include: dealing with floods, saving people from fast-flowing water, and rescuing victims trapped in vehicles or buildings.


Film production venue hire


Tees Barrage is found in stunning surroundings on the bank of the River Tees in Stockton, which is one of the reasons that we’re a popular facility for film location hire. We have the ideal infrastructure for filming a wide range of productions that include but are not limited to watersports, river scenes and flood related scenes or demonstrations.

Having worked on some big budget productions we have the experience and expertise in setting up safe realistic demonstrations with our own staff and presenters alike. We have worked with live TV, National Geographic, Sky TV, Channel 4, CBBC, ITV, CITV, BBC as well as a Hollywood production company.

Most recently Hollywood took to Tees Valley to film part of the award winning war epic 1917 at Tees Barrage International White Water Course which was released in cinemas in January 2020 following the filming on location in June 2019.

You can film across most of the Tees Barrage site, including our watersport courses and meeting rooms. So, let us know what you need and we’ll try to make it happen.
