National Science and Media Museum

Located right in the centre of Bradford, overlooking the City Park, The National Science and Media Museum is a unique venue for your corporate event. With an eclectic choice of galleries, cinemas and dining spaces for hire, this is fast becoming one of West Yorkshire’s most popular venues for those looking for somewhere a bit different to host a conference, awards presentation, drinks reception or private dinner.

The venue offers the flexibility to hire spaces individually or in conjunction with one another, which works well if you’re looking for a separate space for pre-event drinks before moving onto the main event.

So how about hosting your business event in a cinema? For day and evening hire, the National Science and Media Museum has two sumptuous auditoria that are superb for conferences, presentations and product launches. The Pictureville Cinema seats 300 people, whilst the Cubby Broccoli Cinema seats 100. As you’d expect, both have the latest audio visual equipment with high tech projection and sound systems.

The galleries and atrium can be hired for corporate receptions and dinners during the evening, when they take on a completely different ambience than in their daytime guise. The Atrium, with its glazed façade, becomes a quite stunning space, with the spacious open plan layout providing a unique environment for dinners for 180 guests, and receptions or exhibitions for 300 standing. The Media Café is included in the hire of the Atirum, but can be hired separately for smaller events for up to 80 people.

The Kodak Gallery showcases the history of modern photography – just imagine hosting a dinner for 60 or reception for 240 in such an interesting setting – your guests will love the unusual vibe of the Victorian style drawing room.

But quirky really comes into its own when you hire the Games Lounge for your evening event – exhibiting the history of video gaming, this is an entertaining backdrop for a reception for 100 guests.

The National Science and Media Museum has free Wi-Fi throughout and works with specialist technical teams to provide extensive audio-visual facilities. In-house caterers offer set or bespoke menus created using the finest local produce.

The National Science and Media Museum is just 5 minutes’ walk from Bradford Interchange and 15 minutes from Bradford Forster Square Station. The M62 is within easy reach and Leeds is just 12 miles distant. There are several nearby car parks and good hotels.
