Academic Venues Solutions (AVS), the UK’s consortium dedicated to academic venues, has just announced three new members, bringing the total representation to 48 member venues.
Madingley Hall, part of the University of Cambridge is located in Cambridge, within an hours drive of London, is an elegant country house built in the 16th century, has 16 meeting rooms and can accommodate up to 100 delegates. The Hall is available year-round and has spectacular gardens and grounds designed in the 18th century by ‘Capability’ Brown.
Head East and you will find Putteridge Bury, part of the University of Bedfordshire, in Luton, a neo-Elizabeth manor house built in 1911 in the style of Chequers, with beautiful grounds and reflecting pool. With elegant meeting rooms, some with the original oak panelling, chandeliers and overlooking the grounds, the venue provides a superb backdrop for a wide variety of events both indoors and out.
The last of the trio, you will find is The University of Sheffield, with a variety of buildings on offer for conferences, meetings, events and exhibitions. Whether you are looking for a small meeting to a tiered lecture theatre, self-contained space or stepping outside into beautiful grounds and gardens, it can all be found in the heart of Sheffield.
Rachael Lee, Sales and Membership Director on welcoming the three venues into the consortium said: “The team here at AVS are thrilled to welcome these new and diverse venues into membership. All the new University venues enter AVS into new arenas whether that is a new location, a new type of venue or different capacity, in terms of size. We can’t wait to work with the new teams at all the venues.”
