National Space Centre

A venue that’s out of this world! The National Space Centre is home to the UK’s biggest planetarium, plus it has six interactive galleries and at 42 metres high, the fabulous Rocket Tower. You can hire spaces for meetings and events of all sizes; imagine a board meeting, conference, awards presentation, product launch, exhibition or networking reception in such an awesome setting! Imagine a space themed dining room! It takes Christmas parties and weddings to another dimension, and the team building activities really are something else!

Let’s start with the biggest of those flexible event spaces. Right at the centre of the galleries is the Hub, superb for evening events for 500 guests; drinks receptions really come into their own here. The Sir Patrick Moore Planetarium can seat up to 192 guests; book it and inspire your delegates with an award-winning show as an extra. The iconic Rocket Tower can hold a maximum of 200 people standing and 70 seated in theatre style, and the Soyuz Lounge has a similar capacity. The Shuttle Suite as a whole provides exhibition space of 274 square metres, or as a meeting and conference centre can hold up to 200 delegates in theatre style and can be divided into 4 separate spaces seating 30-70 people, which offers a lot of scope for smaller meetings. The other thing is, they do exclusive hire for up to 500 guests on selected dates, think of that - hold your main event in the planetarium, use the galleries for breakouts and think tanks. The team building is beyond compare, the centre offers workshops for 2 to 100 and are such fun!

Event spaces are air conditioned, there’s free wifi, parking, and a choice of menus to suit all types of events, all tastes and all budgets; most of all, you’ll have a very dedicated and reliable team to look after you. The National Space Centre is open to the public, so breakfast and evening events aren’t a problem, but daytime events can only be held on selected dates; you’ll need to contact them for more information.
