As a well-respected education and research institute, it makes sense for us to have several conferencing venues. Venues you can use to host large and smaller daytime events such as presentations, meetings, training days and seminars.
You can find out about each venue below.
You also have a wide range of delicious food and drink options provided by our caterers, Benugo.
The Flett Theatre
This purpose-built, auditorium-style theatre is ideal for talks, conferences, seminars and training days. The Flett Theatre has built-in audiovisual equipment and next to it a large, private foyer for registrations and refreshment breaks.
Delegates are also welcome to explore the nearby galleries and check out the exhibits during their breaks. Because it's situated next to the striking Earth Hall, you can combine daytime events in the Flett Theatre with evening drinks or dinner in the Earth Hall for a special finishing touch to your event.
Named after the former Director of the Natural History Museum, and with its state-of-the-art audiovisual equipment, the Neil Chalmers Seminar Room is perfect for small presentations, conferences and screenings.
Because it is close to the Darwin Centre atrium, in the summer months you can serve refreshments in the beautiful landscaped courtyard. And depending on the nature of your event, you can also combine a daytime event in the seminar room with evening drinks or dinner in the Darwin Centre.
