We have ten purpose built rooms which are ideal for meetings and training. Our conference auditorium, the Lighthouse, has 560 tiered seating which makes it ideal for conference, presentations, award ceremonies and product launches.

Set within 147 acres of stunning parkland, The Pavilion at Wicksteed Park is the perfect place for meetings, conferences, team-building, exhibitions, gala dinners and more.
The Georgian Pavilion offers three meeting and events spaces:- the Ideas Café, perfect for small meetings up to 20 people with it’s own terrace; the Celebrations Suite, a split level room ideal for meetings, training, dinners and networking events. The Pavilion Suite is a very large space, great for exhibitions, parties and dinners, as well as meetings, conferences, shows and charity events. With a huge sprung dancefloor, two large function bars, cloakroom and modern AV equipment, it is a uniquely flexible space.
All three spaces have abundant natural daylight, air-conditioning and their own WCs.
Outside, delegates and guests can enjoy lunch al fresco (depending on the British weather, of course!) overlooking the beautiful parkland and gardens, or for the young at heart, you can experience the fun of the fair with teambuilding grounds, rides such as SWAY rider, RUSH (our triple activity tower with long zip wire) and more.
