For larger events, such as recitals, where an audience of 100+ is expected, you may like to ask about using our Main Shrine Room.

 

With the hire of each room comes access to the Cafe Area and use of the kitchen for food and drink preparation, although we do not have the facilities to sell any food prepared there. It may be that different groups are hiring rooms at the Buddhist Centre simultaneously, in which case we may contact you about coordinating lunchtimes so that everyone can eat and drink under the best conditions possible.

It may also be possible to use equipment that the Centre has including flipcharts and lecterns, etc. Please ask about this when you book.

The Buddhist Centre also has a garden, and clement weather permitting this is available to use during break and lunchtimes.
