Faraday Complex

In a word, the Faraday Complex offers flexibility. That’s thanks to a comprehensive range of meeting and event spaces, all in one self-contained building.

While it has the spaces ideal for team meetings, training days or presentations, it also offers the scale for department-level events or large-scale conferences – with enough space in its lecture theatres for up to 620 people at once.

Contact us about this venue

Its largest lecture theatre has space for an audience of 280 people, while there are other tiered theatres for up to 140 and up to 60. There are four seminar rooms, handy for breakout sessions or meetings of up to 24 people. And, the central foyer area that not only links all the other facilities, but also provides the space for event registration or break-time refreshments. With a few screens, you can even split the area into a smaller event space.

We’re here to help you make the most of that flexibility. From mapping out the spaces that fit your event, to arranging all the projection, presentation and audio equipment you need, all you need to do is ask.
