The National Memorial Arboretum’s new £8.1million events building, called Aspects, will open in October 2018.

The Staffordshire venue has designed a modern event space with views across the Arboretum’s landscape and delegate packages can include guided tours of the 150-acre site.

There are up to seven separate event spaces that can be configured and combined to meet the needs of organisers. Up to 500 delegates can be accommodated for conferences using a theatre-style set-up, and banquets of up to 300 people can enjoy a tailored menu prepared the venue’s kitchens.

"The opening of Aspects next month is another landmark moment for the Arboretum, providing a contemporary events space in a stunning and inspirational location," said Sarah Oakden, head of marketing at the National Memorial Arboretum.

To celebrate the opening of the new venue, The Aboretum is running a competition to win a meeting for 12 in the executive Alder room (Entries close 28 September), which you can enter here.
