The Howard Building is a magnificent building, created specifically with conference requirements in mind, it forms a main base and meeting centre. A lift between floors means the building is fully accessible.
On the ground floor is a large reception area with bar, suitable for registrations, receptions, exhibitions, coffee/tea breaks and buffets. This opens out onto the sunken garden of Howard Court.
On the first floor there is a 150-seat lecture hall, fully equipped with data projection, PA system (with a variety of microphones), small stage area and a small office with broadband computer connections, phone and photocopier.
