The Maurice Barnett Room

Like the John Tudor and Dinsdale Young rooms, the bright and airy Maurice Barnett Room takes its name from a former Superintendent Minister of the Methodist Central Hall  – in this case the Reverend Maurice Barnett who served until 1980.

As an event space, the Maurice Barnett Room is extremely versatile and is ideal for all manner of seminars, meetings, and training sessions.

It holds up to 60 people in theatre style, and features large windows, optional blackout facilities, and an impressively high ceiling. It also interconnects with an adjacent syndicate room that can be used as a convenient catering, cloakroom or registration area.

We can provide a delicious variety of catering options in the Maurice Barnett Room. Our extensive range of delegate-friendly options include bowl food, hot and cold buffet items, and working lunch menus – as well as a long list of beverages, soft drinks and fresh juices. We can also work with Green & Fortune, our on-site catering partner to create a bespoke menu if you wish.
