With so many rooms on offer, finding the perfect interactive learning space will be easy in The Spark. Our two lecture theatres, Jane Austen and Palmerston, each contain an A10 device with touch capacity, 5.1 surround sound, cinema quality projection and a high-definition visualiser. The furniture within these two lecture theatres is fixed but each theatre is different to enable a flexible space.

For larger groups, the Jane Austen lecture theatre provides seating for 200 in a traditional lecture hall style. The Palmerston seats 150 and is arranged in a Harvard lecture theatre style, making it ideal for debates or discussions.

You can also hire stationery, flip charts and pens and our technical staff will be on hand to help you with the equipment, helping to make your presentations run smoothly. All of the conference centre rooms are equipped with 70-inch Clevertouch screens, wireless microphones and PC.

We have a wide range of food and drink options to cater for all types of events and appetites, including our specially designed menu to help boost your team’s energy.
