Darwin conference suite set-up for a dinner

Darwin Conference Suite

Darwin Conference Suite is our all year round flexible conference venue, situated in Darwin College.  

An adaptable space for a maximum of 300 people. It can be used as one large room or divided, with soundproofed walls, into three smaller rooms with a capacity of 40 to 100 people. The space has its own reception area, cloakroom, dance floor, and bar.

The flexibility of this space, allows for a wide range of meeting and event needs to be met.  Boardroom or theatre style for those important business meetings or talks or banqueting style for dinner dances.


The event space was perfect and the food was plentiful and to a very high standard. Would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone thinking of holding an event at Darwin College.
