The William Sangster Room

The William Sangster Room shares its name with the Reverend William Edwin Sangster, the former Methodist Superintendent Minister.

It is a multifaceted, flexible room that offers natural light, optional blackout facilities, and air conditioning. Its unique circular shape also reflects the unique architectural style of Central Hall Westminster.

The William Sangster Room is flexible enough to set up in multiple styles, and has a maximum capacity of 150 people in theatre style. It also is discreetly located on Level 2, providing a perfect setting for formal events such as meetings, seminars, and seated lunches or dinners.
