Alpha Pro Creative is an organisation based in Derby – their aim is to provide a range of accessible and inclusive creative facilities and workshops both at their premises and offsite at schools, festivals, and pretty much anywhere else you can imagine.

Owner Caz Cockeram brought the premises and turned it into a multi functional business. The intention was to turn the space into a creative hub for artists to work, rehearse and perform together – Creative Central was born.


At Creative Central there are a wide range of solutions, businesses can hire space by the hour, day, week, or even longer. It’s a great idea, especially if you are on a budget and do not wish to be committed to a contract like many business premises.

Musician and workshop facilitator,GeZ Addictive, has been performing and working in the Derby music scene for years. Now (looking to help the community as well as music scene) Alpha Pro offer a bespoke space – available to rent.


Whether you’re a band looking to rehearse, an arts and craft group, a school group/youth group looking to run workshops/ summer school, or even a personal trainer, they have the perfect space.

The creative space is available for a variety of uses; Workshops, therapy, photography, filming, music practice, band rehearsal, audio visual editing, hot desking etc.

Music rental equipment is available – aka PA systems, mic stands etc. etc. Fast wifi, and ethernet sockets for easy transfer of BIG files all included in the price.

Secure storage can be arranged along with bespoke services for regular bookings. There’s also communal kitchen facilities and a chill out area on site too, all ground floor.

People that have used the space include Adam Slack from the Struts and Fleet Arts, and some of the businesses already renting rooms are;

Award winning MM Drum School – Michael Moore.
