Read on to learn a bit more about each Norfolk venue and what they’ve all got to offer.

Barnham Broom

Located less than 30 minutes from Norwich, Barnham Broom is a luxury resort set in the gorgeous Norfolk countryside. As well as offering facilities including a spa, gym, and golf course, Barnham Broom also have spaces available for corporate events and meetings.

Looking to escape the office or maybe a bit of R&R? With all these facilities, Barnham Broom is a great choice for team away days and corporate fun days – leaving your team motivated and energised.

The Space

The Space is a conference venue in Norwich that has a great range of small, medium and large rooms available for hire – offering flexible options for whatever you event is.

Plus, The Space is also a social enterprise facility. This means that they reinvest their profits back in to making positive social change, both in Norwich, and beyond.

Norfolk Showground & events Centre

If you’re planning an event on the larger side, the Norfolk Showground is probably your best bet. As well hosting the Royal Norfolk Show, the Norfolk Showground is also home to Norfolk Chamber of Commerce’s annual B2B Exhibition among county’s other largest events.

Just outside Norwich, off the A47, the Norfolk Showground offers hire options including a variety of meeting rooms, 150 acres of parkland, and a 3000sqm arena – great for exhibition space.

Broadland Food Innovation Centre

Located just off the A47 you’ll find the brand new Broadland Food Innovation Centre. Having officially opened its doors in September 2022, the state of the art facility offers not only commercial food grade units to let, but also a test kitchen and conferencing facilities (for both external and internal bookings).

The conference room at Broadland Food Innovation Centre is available for events and meetings for up to 24 delegates, with facilities including an 86″ TV screen, a 360-degree meeting camera, and free refreshments.

The forum

In the centre of Norwich, the Forum is open 363 days a year and has both indoor and outdoor space available for hire.

In addition to meeting rooms, the Forum also has an impressive 400sqm atrium which can be shaped to your needs. The Forum’s auditorium is also a good space for conferencing, and can be booked together with the gallery for larger events.

Hethel Engineering Centre

Last but not least it’s Hethel Engineering Centre! Located just off the A11 near Wymondham, we’ve got a variety of rooms suitable for a range of business functions, including conferences, training, events, and meetings.
