Mabel Booth Room

With a maximum capacity of 35 people, tables that can be laid out in numerous alternative ways and a ceiling mounted digital projector, computer and projection screen/SMART Board, the Mabel Booth Room is a versatile space and an ideal setting for larger meetings, seminars and courses. The Mabel Booth Room also has a comfortable seating area that can be sectioned off and a kitchen for self-service teas and coffees.

For a smaller, and consequently cheaper option try our Basement Meeting room.
