We can manage all of your audio visual and IT needs with expert staff on hand to assist you in the smooth running of your event. Listed below is a brief description of the fantastic conference rooms we have available.



Due to its superb acoustic qualities, the Arena is the perfect concert and wedding venue, with a seating capacity of up to 1,200 or 1,600 standing. Staging, acoustic curtain and acoustic towers are also available along with trained knowledgeable staff.

Lecture Theatre

This luxurious theatre is available for private hire when it is not being used as a cinema. It offers exceptional comfort, acoustics and decor, and has a seating capacity of 243, ideal for large presentations. The audience can experience powerpoint presentations on the large screen, and the theatre is equipped with an induction loop for the hearing-impaired and has wheelchair access.

Grainayre Room

This is an ideal room for training sessions and discussion groups. A connecting door to the lecture theatre means it is a perfect space to use as a breakout room in conjunction with the lecture theatre.
