The historic event venue can accommodate up to 50 guests for your next intimate affair.

Get cozy at the Charles River Speedway for your next intimate event. This new private event and workshop space, located within the Charles River Speedway, is a cottagecore-dream, meets 19th century hideaway in the heart of Brighton. 

The space is light and airy with enough room to accommodate up to 50 guests standing or a seated event for groups of 30. Boasting wooden floors, cottage-style windows, and a rounded turret corner — this blank-slate venue can be filled with rentals to fit your mirco-event needs. 

With a little imagination, this compact space can be transformed for a small family gathering or a corporate educational session. Need some inspiration? Here are a few ways to utilize The Annex:

The historic events venue can be transformed with rentals and lighting.

An intimate rehearsal dinner or anniversary party for your closest friends and family.

Stage one long table down the center of the space, or strategically place a few round tables around the room for a seated dinner for 30 guests. Bonus: Add uplighting and create a playlist to share on the Bose Sound System for a dance party after dessert.

A cozy cottage-themed baby shower.

The windows let in plenty of natural light to make the hideaway feel open and spacious. Add in a balloon arch, lounge seating, and a few tables for snacks and gifts — you’ll transport guests out of the city and into a cozy hideaway.

A classroom workshop.

Searching for a space to convey educational material to a small audience? This space can accommodate a classroom setup, a projector, and offers free Wifi. You won’t have to venture far for coffee or a lunch break with plenty of choices right in the Speedway.
