Faraday Complex

The Faraday Complex is home to a comprehensive range of meeting and event spaces, within one self-contained building.

Tiered lecture theatres within the Faraday Complex can support audiences of up to 620 people at once, whilst four additional seminar rooms are suitable for breakout sessions or meetings of up to 24 people. Each facility is tied together by a central foyer area which provides the space for event registration or break-time refreshments.

Our team can support mapping out the Faraday Complex spaces to suit individual events, and provide the projection, presentation and audio equipment required.
