Conferences, meetings and training


The Forest Centre is the natural place for your business meeting or conference. Set in the natural beauty of the Millennium Country Park, we may only be 5 minutes from J13 of the M1 but in such a peaceful setting, you’d never know it! We have a range of 4 purpose built conference rooms, all with beautiful views across the lake and woodlands of the country park; we can provide breakout rooms, separate space for refreshments and even outdoor space. Let us know what you’re looking for and we can do our best to accommodate you!

Suitable for up to 105 delegates (theatre style), we have ample free parking and space for coaches. LCD projectors, screens and laptops are available in all rooms (though, extra charges may apply) and we have free wifi throughout the building. Rooms come with complimentary flip chart, wipe board, pens and water cooler as standard.

Our staff are on hand at all times to help with any technical requirements from setting up your laptop, to photocopying extra sheets for delegates. We pride ourselves on our service and are committed to customer care – so please ask if you would like anything special!

Outside of opening hours it is possible to hire the whole of the Forest Centre including the Café Bar area, which will hold 250 people.

“I have successfully used the Forest Centre many times for conferences and meetings. Parking is not a problem, the organisation is great, the rooms are set out as required, help with carrying heavy equipment and IT support if necessary. The catering is also good. An added bonus is the relaxing view over the lake from the conference rooms.”  Julie, April 2015

We have had seventeen business meetings at the centre now. The breakfasts are superb and the staff are always happy and conscientious. The toilets are always spotless and the surroundings are lovely. It is a joy to visit and I am sure we will have many more breakfast meetings there yet. Keep up the good work everyone.” Sean, May 2015
