Venue Hire - Welwyn Garden City Campus

You couldn't get more central to where we are in Welwyn Garden City, nestled right amongst the local amenities and close to travel links in and around the local area.

Much like it's St Albans counterpart, our Welwyn Garden City campus can house space on any scale, from small meeting rooms to our main hall with its raised stage area. Here our catering teams can provide working lunches to your meeting rooms, evening drinks receptions and light buffets. Just tell us your brief and we'll work on providing the facilities that support your needs during your time on campus.

Our theatre, dance studio and sound proofed rooms are all located at Welwyn Garden City. The spaces can be hired by the local community.

Dance studio

With mirrored walls, a stereo system, a spring floor, changing room and that all-important air conditioning available, it's the perfect place to get to grips with your dancing feet. The dance studio is fitted with fixed ballet barres and can accommodate up to 30 people.

Meeting Rooms

We have a variety of rooms which can be booked for meetings, set up with projecting facilities. Speak to our team about your needs.

Main Hall

With the space to accommodate over 250 people, a wooden floor and stage area with projector screen facilities, it's a great space to address a crowd. The floor can be carpeted if required, and we have the contacts to transform the space with effective lighting for a dramatic look if required.


The space is kitted out with a PA system and industry sound and lighting. The theatre can accommodate 60 people seated. With the possibility for retractable seating, the space is again adaptable to the specific needs of your event.

This space has been hired for private parties, weddings, conferences and training events. Here at College, we regularly use the space for termly Principal Briefings to all staff, Student Union conference days, and dress the space theatrically to create a striking backdrop and atmosphere for our Higher Education Graduation Ceremony.
