Main Shrine Room
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, though we do not have the facilities to prepare food for sale. It may be that different groups are using the space at the same time, in which case we may contact you about coordinating lunchtimes so that everyone can eat and drink in the best possible conditions.
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 pleasant garden which is available to use during breaks and meal times.
