Welcome to Nottingham’s leading conference venue.
When you’re looking for a business conference centre, Nottingham has a number of possible venues, but few can match the sheer experience, scope and quality of the stunning and historic Colwick Hall. We are the premier conference cente Nottingham, Nottinghamshire and the East Midlands has to offer, providing a wide range of services and amenities to suit all business needs. Ready to wow your VIPs, key stakeholders or top talent? Our team are here to help make your business event a resounding success.
Across the East Midlands and in Nottingham, conference venues are in rising demand from businesses of all sizes, who prefer to take their key staff and stakeholders off-site for important meetings, workshops, strategy days and talks. But finding the right venue can be tricky, especially when businesses are seeking to host important guests or to hold a multi-purpose event that blends work with a celebratory occasion in the evening. Few commercial venues can offer everything that a business needs from an event or conference – but Colwick Hall is the exception.
The historic former home of Lord Byron, Colwick Hall is a Grade II* listed mansion that has been painstakingly restored to its original glory. It is managed and run by a committed team of professionals who take real pride in sharing the stunning venue with a wide variety of guests. The rooms are decorated to superbly high standards and the atmosphere of the grand hall is welcoming, peaceful and luxurious, with attentive staff on hand to help all guests in every way possible. Colwick Hall is a unique conference venue in Nottingham for combining the best of luxury, history, charm and style with all of the business amenities and digital facilities that modern business clients need.
