More details

Meeting Room 1

A great modern space for up to 40 people in a lecture style layout.  What do you think of the table? Its over 100 years old and Clement Attlee would have sat at it whilst chatting with his colleagues at Toynbee Hall.

Meeting Room 2 and 3

Our most flexible space – meeting room 2 and 3 can be configured as two separate spaces with capacities of 16 and 40 or as one large space with a capacity of 55 people.

Bright and modern it works great for a break out space for a larger event, a board room, or as a training space for a smaller course.

Customer Testimonial

“My experience at Toynbee Hall was nothing but brilliant! From my first conversations with Ben he was welcoming and accommodating to all my needs for my event.

The event space we used was the Lecture Hall and it was perfect for our event. We were also equipped with AV systems which were at a high spec and exactly what we needed. Ben and Whitney are a fantastic team and they were so supportive on the day of our events, nothing was too much to ask! I will be using Toynbee Hall for future events for sure as it has suitable spaces for all sorts of events such as workshops, conferences and training days.”
