Broad Street, Oxford, OX1 3AZ
Elegant, sophisticated and brimming with old fashioned glamour, this unusual venue is ideal for luxurious private dining, drinks receptions, talks & meetings, awards ceremonies, musical concerts and performances. Combined with the nearby Examination Schools, it makes an impressive venue for opening conference plenaries, dinners and drinks receptions. Located in the city centre, the venue’s main space hosts 750 with a further meeting room for 80. It also boasts a rarity in the city – an indoor space at the top of the venue where you can enjoy drinks and panoramic views of the city’s skyline.
Our interesting and unusual venue is located in Oxford, in the heart of the city centre close to public transport and accommodation

The main entrance to the courtyard, and the main entrance to the building are both stepped. There is level access to the courtyard from Broad Street through a narrow doorway. There is also level access from the main Bodleian library courtyard. There is level access into the building through a side door. During events the level entrance is staffed; at other times it is locked and visitors should request assistance from staff to use it. Once inside, there is level access into the main auditorium at ground floor level only. There is no lift access to the upper levels. Due to the age of the building, stairs are old and worn in place with poor contrast. There are handrails on the left side only (ascending). There is a wheelchair accessible toilet on the ground floor. There is a fixed induction loop in the main auditorium.
Jenny and The Venue Booker have provided exemplary service to us over the years.
Saida Basheer, University of Leeds
The Venue Booker is a fantastic service, not only finding the best venue for my event but the constant support throughout the build-up and event itself. Professionalism throughout with great communication. Nothing was too much hassle which made the process effortless! Highly recommend and will be back in the future!
Sarah Grant, GKN
The event went very well thank you - the venue was superb and fitted our requirements exactly. I wholeheartedly recommend it. I will definitely be in touch when I need help finding a venue for our next event.
Anne Robson, Virtrium
Easy to work with and cost-effective. In 2014 The Venue Booker was asked to identify a suitable, new venue for Chambers’ prestigious Medical Law Lecture. Jenny not only met the brief by finding the right venue but she also secured it on favourable terms.
Richard Rodger, Hailsham Chambers
The Venue Booker provided us with a fantastic selection of venues to view for the two events we enquired about – each of these met our brief, several offered something really special and most of them came with discounted rates that we would not have been able to achieve on our own. The service is free of charge and Jenny is friendly and helpful. We will definitely use them again.
