We look at some of the freshest meetings and events spaces across the North.
The Renaissance at Kelham Hall
Newark’s landmark Grade I listed building has re-opened to host a range of new business events within the Trent Valley, with 42 acres of landscaped gardens and beautiful state rooms providing ample team building opportunities. Up to 200 delegates can gather in the hall’s Music Room overlooking the grounds, while the cavernous Great Hall can accommodate up to 1,000 delegates for large conferences and presentations.
A brand new lounge, bar, and refurbished bedrooms are all part of Eastwood Hall’s revamp this year to expand its offering as a contemporary conference and events venue. 36 flexible meeting spaces can cater for up to 400 delegates with all catering and equipment provided, while a leisure club lets guests unwind after a long day. 26 acres of flat landscaped grounds also gives planners the chance to take events outdoors during the later summer months, with the option to arrange a marquee hire for up to 500 delegates.
All Work and Social
All Work and Social’s growing number of venues and co-working spaces continues to elevate the event experience within Manchester’s Spinningfields and Enterprise City. Situated within the Department Bonded Warehouse, the Department Store benefits from an adjacent content studio and professional kitchen to fit 75 seated or 150 standing delegates for private dining and networking events. Showcases, panel talks, and award ceremonies can also be held in The Street space nestled deeper within the same building, where speakers can use wireless headsets, media screens, and live streaming facilities to present in front of 150 standing delegates.
Chesterfield’s Casa Hotel has renovated its popular ground floor dining space with a foliage-draped interior, creating a relaxing setting for intimate and informal meetings. Up to 60 delegates can take advantage of Barca Bar’s small tables and booths dotted around the space to sample the casual tapas-style lunches and dinners in a secluded setting, while the hotel’s 11 flexible suites also suit larger groups of up to 280 delegates.
