Also known as St Ethelburga's Centre for Reconciliation and Peace, this venue is a charity based in a 1000 year old church most recently remembered for its virtual destruction by an IRA bomb in 1993 and its subsequent reconstruction. Its work, as the name implies, involves exploring the relationship between faith and conflict as well as interfaith dialogue and training. It mounts over 100 public events every year and to better fund its work the charity has decided, for the first time, to make the venue available to the open market for event hire.

Extremely convenient for the City, this is not a large capacity events venue and as such can offer a degree of intimacy and dignity. Its very history promotes calm reflection and a sense of perspective which can provide a wonderful "accelerator" to events be they management training seminars, AGM's, or team away days simply to allow pause for thought. Near destruction and a subsequent rebuilding also imbued it with a sense of joy and optimism that is a wonderful backdrop to any celebratory event.

We look forward to welcoming you. Not only will you enjoy it but you will have the satisfaction of knowing that by choosing us you are doing more than holding an event - you are doing good!
