Grand spaces in every sense.

A reception for 1,500 guests, a ball for 1,000, or a conference for several hundred delegates; a big event needs a grand space.

Perhaps your event is best suited to an elegant ballroom packed with original features, a modern conference space with a blank canvas for any event, a historic chapel or an award-winning auditorium. Whatever you’re looking for, we have grand spaces for every occasion.
