Lecture Hall

The Lecture Hall is a flexible open space that adjoins the Library. It is identical to the Library in its styling and dimensions, and the two rooms easily combine to give an increased capacity of 1,000. An added feature of the Lecture Hall is its stage, which makes it an ideal setting for seminars, presentations and large conferences.

The Library

The Library is a flexible space with triple-height ceilings, natural daylight, and a maximum capacity of 500 people. It also features flexible partition walls that allow it to be combined with the adjoining Lecture Hall, for an increased capacity of 1,000 people.

Aldersgate Room

The Aldersgate Room is a modern and adaptable space featuring decorative alcoves, natural light, and a vast vaulted ceiling. It can accommodate up to 250 people in various setups, and offers the ideal backdrop to contemporary events such as gallery exhibitions or drinks receptions.
