The Corn Exchange provides a range of flexible spaces and catering arrangements to suit everyone’s needs.

The versatile building lends itself for large and small events alike, and is equally ideal for private parties, formal dinners, exhibitions, dance classes, concerts, award ceremonies and markets.  The flexible staging, sprung dance floor and the lighting and sound systems in the main hall make it the venue of choice for music and drama performances, or for special occasions such as an anniversary dinner or birthday party.

The Charter Hall can hold up to 300 people, and the three smaller upstairs rooms are perfect for business meetings, workshops and tutorials.  The self-contained rooms offer alternative meeting spaces to local businesses.

The building has accessible toilets, lifts to the upper level, baby changing facilities, Wi-Fi, an induction loop in the main hall, impressive light and sound facilities and a small loading area at the rear for deliveries.  With a professionally equipped kitchen and three fully-licensed bars, the building offers flexible spaces to meet every requirement.

By arrangement our helpful and friendly staff and on-site Manager can be on hand to assist with the organisation of catering, lighting, sound and much more, and will help ensure your booking is a successful one.  Full Event Management packages are offered.
