Conferences, meetings and corporate events

Avoncroft Museum of Historic Buildings is an inspired choice for event organisers looking for a stunning and unusual venue for events  for between 10 and 180 people.

All the conference and event spaces are part of the Museum’s collection of buildings and have beautiful period features that will add the ‘wow’ factor to any event:

  • Impress delegates with a conference for up to 120 under the spectacular fourteenth century roof in the New Guesten Hall
  • Host meetings or training sessions for up to 40 people in the Long Room, part of an Elizabethan mansion with a fascinating history
  • Win over potential clients with a traditional afternoon tea served on vintage china in our award-winning Tea Room

We offer great-value full-day conference packages or a meeting room hire option for shorter meetings.

Refreshments are provided by the Museum’s Tea Room, which uses local and home-grown produce wherever possible.  It also serves locally home-made cakes and award-winning teas.

Our full-day conference packages represent great value and include teas and coffees served four times throughout the day, a delicious buffet lunch menu, use of flipcharts and a digital projector, and complimentary wifi. Museum admission is included in our conference packages and delegates are welcome to stroll around Avoncroft’s grounds and explore the buildings.

New Guesten Hall

New Guesten Hall has a magnificent fourteenth century roof which was originally the showpiece of the Priory at Worcester Cathedral before it was rescued and reconstructed at Avoncroft Museum.  Ideal for conferences, networking events and lunches or dinners, it is the largest of our rooms and accommodates up to 120 delegates seated or 180 standing.  It has level access to the main Hall and its own facilities.

The Long Room

The Long Room is a stunning room located on the first floor with lots of natural daylight.  Dating from 1576 and originally built in Shrewsbury, the building has had a colourful past as a private mansion, an inn and a shop.  It is suitable for presentations, meetings, training sessions and networking events for up to 40 delegates.

About Avoncroft Museum

Avoncroft is England’s first open-air museum and all its exhibits have been rescued from their original location and rebuilt at the Museum.  Highlights include a working 19th century windmill, a fully furnished 1940s prefab and a medieval Town House.  The Museum is also home to the National Telephone Kiosk Collection.

Great location

The Museum is easily accessible and is just off the A38 south of Bromsgrove in Worcestershire, halfway between Birmingham and Worcester.  It is a few minutes’ drive from J4 and J5 of the M5 and J1 of the M42 (S) and 5 minute taxi ride from Bromsgrove station.

There is a large, free car park for visitors to the Museum.
