Hello, my name is Paul A Dennis, I am an experienced designer and creative producer who loves to draw humans, design logos and produce creative projects. I work from and run PAD STUDIOS, a unique creative space for hire in the Heart of Hull’s historic Old Town.



The ground floor Gallery Space provides a flexible event/presentation space with Ten large white 8‘ x 4‘ display boards and a 40” TV. Six presentation easels and central pencil themed glass table and art pedestals. Alongside a leather seated area and a small reception desk to ensure visitors are met and directed to the upstairs. 

The first floor Studio Space provides a timber beamed, attic style, open wooden floor area suitable for rehearsals, performances, presentations and workshops. It can seat up to 34 people in theatre style, has a small prep area for drinks and food with a variety of tables and workspaces to meet most demands. With double first floor, warehouse doors that open onto the alleyway, that leads to the once bustling River Hull.

It is close (thirty paces), to Ye Olde Black Boy pub, one of the oldest pubs in Hull and the Lion & Key, where delicious plates of Hull’s finest Fish & Chips are served. The Sailmakers Arms in the adjoining High Street has a lovely outdoor seating areas facing onto the historic High Street and Hull’s free Street Life Museum is but a few short steps away. Wilberforce House the home of slavery abolitionist William Wilberforce sits by its side.

The Scale Lane swing bridge accesses three large parking areas across the River. With Hull’s largest Premier Inn a short walk away across it.

In short, PAD STUDIOS it is a hidden gem of a place that welcomes people into Hull’s Old Town.
