Function Rooms for Meetings, Religious Gatherings or Conferences
Stonyhurst College features a number of function rooms, ranging from traditional and listed to modern and bespoke.
The wide variety of function rooms available to hire, cater for groups of all sizes and can be equipped with a full range of conferencing equipment, including laptop, projector and screen, flipcharts, TV and video.
We also offer a variety of catering options to fit within our client’s budget, from a two or three course served meal to a hot or cold buffet in the function room of your choice.
Large Scale and Public Events
The nature and size of the College lends itself to large events, often open to members of the public. Stonyhurst Enterprises has a wealth of experience hosting events of this size, managing the planning, preparation and delivery.
Over the last 20 years, Stonyhurst has played host to the NAFAS Flower Show, the Great British Food Festival, Galloway Antiques & Fine Art Fair and the Stonyhurst Spring & Autumn Fairs.
New to 2017 is the Maverick Races Trail Running Event which will take place across the College grounds. In the autumn we will host the first Ribble Valley Wedding Show, showcasing the best of Lancashire’s wedding industry.
At particular times of the year, we can support public events at the College by offering a café facility.
Each facility hire enquiry is dealt with on an individual basis to suit specific requirements, providing a bespoke, personal service to every client.
Why not include an historical tour of the College?
The College is also blessed with an awe-inspiring collection of artefacts reaching back to the sixteenth century. Amongst this collection is an Egyptian mummy, Arthur Conan Doyle’s school desk and a collection of historic manuscripts.
It is these special features which make Stonyhurst a unique venue and will serve to enhance the experiences of those hiring its facilities.
Tours must be pre-booked at the time of hiring our facilities, and groups must total a minimum of 15 people.
‘We all greatly enjoyed our visit. Stonyhurst has such a varied collection of amazing things that there is something to interest and amuse all tastes. The lunch was excellent – in fact the best meal we had during our stay in the Ribble Valley.’
