The Middenfabriek is the heart of SugarCity Events. The first thing you’ll see as you enter is the imposing three-storey atrium.

The original stairs have been preserved, along with authentic boilers, pillars and machinery, giving this former sugar factory a raw, industrial feel.

The Middenfabriek is SugarCity Events’ biggest space. When all three storeys are used together it has room for nearly 6,500 guests, though they can also be used separately. The Middenfabriek is also the Netherlands’ only event location to have a vehicle lift.

It can be connected to our other event spaces: the Pulppersloods and the Binnenstraat.

The voice of Holland

TV recordings/production View case

SugarCity Events was the Netherlands’ oldest sugar factory, operating from 1863 to 1992 and owned by CSM Suiker. The air was full of steam, the din of cranes and other machinery, and the smell of sugarbeet.

Since 2002, it has been undergoing redevelopment by the Cobraspen Group, transforming it into a unique event location while keeping the factory itself fully intact. It incorporates all the advanced technology you’d expect from a modern event venue, but this has been done subtly and with respect for the factory’s character.

The unique décor is testimony to the former sugar factory’s industrial grandeur, and it is still making history with many memorable events.
