Alongside the residential accommodation the College has to offer is a range of function rooms and facilities available for hire outside of term time.

Function & Meeting Rooms

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, Ribble Valley Wedding Show and the Stonyhurst Spring & Autumn Fairs.

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.

Sports Facilities

In the beautiful setting of the Stonyhurst estate is a multitude of private sports facilities including a 25m indoor swimming pool, a nine hole golf course, an all-weather pitch, indoor sports hall, shooting range and dance studio. Our facilities also include a brand new state of the art indoor tennis dome and separate fitness centre. All our sports facilities are available for one -off bookings, coaching or training sessions and block bookings.

‘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.’
