Venue Hire - a room for every occasion

With neutral décor, beautiful wooden floors and large capacities, our Saxon and Wessex halls provide the perfect backdrop to any wedding, birthday or celebration and are also a fantastic space for activity sessions like exercise classes or dance lessons. 
For smaller functions and activities or meetings, training sessions and one to one sessions, we also have our fully carpeted Mercia and Anglian suites that provide ample room whilst being a more intimate setting.

Each room comes with its own internal PA system with simple connection to phones/laptops/tablets so you can be your own DJ as well as being fully connectable to all professional equipment if you have your own music provider.  For conferences, presentations or just to have a slide show of memorable pictures during your party you can connect via HDMI to the large projector screens in either our Saxon or Wessex halls, or TV monitors in our Mercia and Anglian Suites.

We also have a full catering kitchen, on-site bar, free of charge off and on road parking, accessible toilets, baby change, showers and changing rooms, so what ever your event or activity, we are likely to have a room that suits you.
