Darwin Centre and courtyard

The Darwin Centre offers a contemporary canvas for a multitude of events including summer parties, drinks receptions and formal dinners.

Steel beams and reflective glass, together with the white limestone floor and curved concrete walls, provide a bright and modern event setting. The opportunity to explore the Cocoon is an extra treat to any event.

The courtyard provides a tranquil setting for a summertime party or drinks reception with the additional space of the atrium inside. 

The state-of-the-art Attenborough Studio has a capacity of 60 people and can be used for press conferences and presentations, followed by drinks and canapés in the courtyard.

For event organisers looking for something a little different, the Darwin Centre can also be used as an entrance to Hintze Hall.
