Wills Hall

If you want atmosphere, space and a great location, Wills Hall, as one of the University’s best kept secrets, is the perfect venue for a conference.

Set in beautiful grounds, it has the look of a building much older than it really is. It was built in the great traditions of academic buildings around a quadrangle, and wouldn’t look out of place in Oxford or Cambridge.

Access is via a massive oak door, and inside you’ll find a magnificent oak panelled banqueting room, which is perfect for hosting a range of functions and for laying-on a memorable feast with the expert help of the in-house catering team. Up to 200 guests can be catered for in either a buffet/self-service meal or for a formal meal. 

There is a comfortable bar area and ample room for a marquee outside. Parking is also available, and accommodation can be offered out of term.
