Norwich church unveils new conference venue

SpaceFront2011: Norwich church Proclaimers is opening the doors of a former retail warehouse which it has transformed into a church facility and conference centre - for use by local businesses and organisations.

With several bookings already under its belt, The Space, on Rowntree Way, promises to become a key conference and meeting venue for the region and prospective hirers can look around at an open day with a difference on April 14.
The Space was officially opened in January and is now available for hire. Thursday April 14 has been named as an open day where business and community leaders, people involved in charity and voluntary sectors and anyone else interested in taking a look, can visit The Space to see the facilities and spaces available for hire.
The new Norwich venue boasts small conference rooms that will seat up to 25 people, larger rooms up to 75, a large foyer and 500-seat auditorium. It also is one of the few Norwich venues to benefit from lots of ceiling height and load-level access through a roller shutter door - features that will be shown off on the open day by bringing a life-size Forumla 1 car simulator into the main auditorium.
SpaceRoomSenior Minister Tom Rawls said: “We have created a flexible space that we believe will become a real asset to our city and we’re looking forward to hosting a huge variety of events here at The Space.”
The Open Day is being billed as ‘not your average show-round’ with fun activities planned in various rooms to give people ideas of what can be done with the spaces and as Business Development Manager Jill Watkinson says ‘to make things fun’.
“The Open Day will be lots of fun, we’re inviting people to pop in between 10.30am and 4.30pm to see and experience the wow factor of The Space: it’s bright, fresh and something very different for Norwich,” she said.
All are welcome but the day will be particularly interesting to thos.e involved in business or the charity sectors. For more information contact
You can find The Space at Roundtree Way, Norwich NR7 8SQ.
