5 rooms, 5 executive boxes, and a maximum capacity of 180 guests; howzat! Essex Cricket Conference and Events is right in the heart of Chelmsford and whether you’re a cricket fan or not, this is a fantastic venue for private celebrations, summer and Christmas parties, and for all manner of business meetings and events from conferences, awards presentations, training days and product launches to syndicate and board meetings, interviews and corporate hospitality.

Let’s look at those rooms, starting with the biggest.

It seats the same number in theatre style, and 140 for dinner.

The Doug Insole Pavilion also has its own bar and pitch views; hire it for parties or receptions for 150 guests, theatre style events and dinners for 100, and for board meetings for 30. The Committee Room on the first floor has a private balcony and a birds eye view of the pitch; it holds 15 delegates in boardroom, cabaret, and theatre style, or for private dining. The pitch side Executive Boxes seat a maximum of 25 in theatre style, or 20 for lunch or dinner.
