The Great Hall
For an event resplendent with prestige and grandeur, look no further than the late-Victorian Great Hall at the heart of the University of Birmingham’s historic campus.
Ideal for large conferences, award ceremonies, product launches and exhibitions, this impressive venue takes the breath away from the moment you step inside.
Your guests will enjoy a grand welcome when they enter via the opulent marble rotunda with its stunning domed ceiling. Then, create a sense of wonder and elegance with the Great Hall’s cathedral-height ceiling, stained-glass windows and polished parquet floor.
With state-of-the-art sound and free Wi-Fi throughout, it’s the perfect blend of Victorian sophistication and the latest technology.
The Great Hall can accommodate 320 delegates in cabaret style, 430 in a banquet and 1,000 guests in theatre style.
The Great Hall is equipped with its own PA system, complete with surround sound, which is supported by our in-house technical team. You can also benefit from free high speed Wi-Fi access for your delegates.
The choice is yours, from welcome refreshments served in the marble foyer to a bespoke lunch menu or afternoon tea.
The Great Hall is an accessible venue, with ramp access into the Aston Webb building, and lift access to the stage area.
