What Others Say About Us

  • Event Designers have used the Centre for weddings, trade shows and formal award nights. It is versatile and very functional, great for large events. I would recommend the venue to anyone seeking brand new, purpose built and aesthetically pleasing for any events

  • We have held Quiz Nights as well as our 60th Reunion in the Centre. We use the AV and sound equipment, the tables and chairs - everything is on tap and very reasonable prices. I would highly recommend the venue for both casual or more upmarket events

  • This is a fantastic venue to hold the annual Hospice Charity Ball. We used the separate Foyer area for guests to mix and mingle on arrival. We decorated the main part to suit our theme and had lavish table settings for 200 for a served meal. We had room to put down a dance floor and the band took the stage.
