Located on the ground floor of our iconic URBIS building, the Pitch Gallery is the ideal setting for large parties, dinners, awards ceremonies and more. The Pitch Gallery offers a versatile contemporary space for your special event, which seats 250 for dinner or 400 for an informal event.

Your guests can enter the space from a range of different ways, and you can even have an exclusive look round the museum collections after closing time. The space also has a brandable LED curtain & large screen available for use, giving you the ideal focal point for Q&As, live music & presentations.

Located on the top two floors of the museum, the Box Gallery is a self-contained hire space that is separate from the rest of the museum. This space is split across two floors, with a connecting staircase. The Box Gallery has floor to ceiling windows, offering stunning views across the city skyline both day and night.

Hosting 30 for a meeting, 40 for dinner, or 120 for a reception, the Box Gallery is the perfect space for private dining, networking, board meetings or brand showcases.

The Dugout offers a relaxed, light and airy space overlooking Cathedral Gardens.

Complementing both the Pitch and Box Gallery hire, it offers a great space for networking and breakouts as well as a lovely social area for lunch away from the main event space.

The gardens also offer an alternative breakout space in the summer months, offering a peaceful haven in the heart of the city centre.
