Offering more than just a conference venue

This month, we are extremely excited to open our doors to host the four day Kendal Poetry Festival (6-9 Sept) for the very first time. A wonderful line-up of national and international poets and writers with a packed programme of readings, talks, discussions, workshops, open mics and children’s events.

After two sell out festivals, the festival organisers wanted to find a venue that could house their growing audience. More importantly, they were looking for event specialists to provide a venue that catered for a variety of key-note speakers, facilitated workshops, breakout rooms as well as providing venue space with suitable access to all delegates and guests.

Our team have been working closely with the festival to understand their audience, provided support, equipment and instructions for wheelchair access, hearing loops and visually impaired guests.

Our aim is to ensure everyone from 2-300 delegates has a wonderful experience. We create customised packages for small or large events and conferences, each bespoke to suit your needs and budget. We have a choice of 8 meeting spaces, presentation equipment, free, fast Wifi and plenty of car parking. Whatever the needs or requirements, we will do our best to find the perfect solution to suit each varied agenda.

We are members of the Meetings Industry Association and have held their AIM Accreditation since 2009, being the only meeting accreditation of its kind in the UK, event organisers can be assured we are competent, and understand the careful planning and logistics involved in events and conferences.

Some may require accommodation and dining, which we can of course also deliver, and if required, included as part of the overall package. Our outstanding 2 AA Rosette Restaurant and 4 star accommodation inclusive of our health and fitness facilities are sure to sweeten any delegates or potential business partners.

If you have a meeting, event or conference coming up and need a venue, please don’t hesitate to get in touch on 01539 734000, we will be happy to talk through your requirements and put together a bespoke package.
