Room hire

Shared spaces for community and corporate events

At Ards Arts Centre we have a number of rooms which can be hired out by members of the public for occasional use. With a range of spaces available, our rooms are perfect for hosting everything from meetings and conferences, to smaller corporate functions.

Whether you’re a local creative group, business or an individual who needs somewhere to host an event, just get in touch to find out more about our rooms for hire.

Our rooms

The Londonderry Room

This beautifully restored Georgian function room is named after Lord Londonderry – whose imposing portrait dominates the gable wall – and is suitable for larger meetings, conferences and talks, as well as small corporate functions. 

Maximum capacity 100* 

The Studio

A multi-purpose arts room, the Studio is a more compact space and is ideal for hosting more hands-on arts and crafts classes and workshops, as well as informal talks or meetings. 

Maximum capacity 30*

Room One

Perfect for hosting meetings, workshops, seminars and talks, Room One has a similar capacity to our studio space. 

Maximum capacity 30*.

The Boardroom

This modest meeting room is permanently set up in a typical boardroom style, lending itself perfectly for more corporate and formal occasions.

Maximum capacity 20*.

Kitchen

We also have a kitchen which can be hired alongside your preferred meeting room, including access to a boiler and oven. 

Note: Hire does not include catering, crockery or utensils, which you have to supply yourself.

 

*Maximum room capacity refers to a room set out with rows of seats, along with one top table or a catering table. If you require more tables than this, or a different room layout, then the maximum capacity will be reduced.

For more information about our rooms for hire and their availability please contact Ards Arts Centre on 028 9181 0803.
