Business events
An event at the Wat Tyler Centre is a marvellous way to
communicate a distinctive message. Select from a range of
flexible spaces to host everything from an executive
meeting to exhibitions, conferencing, product launches
and training.
Visitors and staff will enjoy an inspirational, informal
setting to explore, with free admission to the interactive
exhibition and heritage collections. As an alternative to
dining in the restaurant, why not picnic on the Village Green
with its picturesque cottages and pond? It’s a great al fresco
breakout space.

The Wat Tyler Centre boasts some great technology to
enhance the low carbon credentials we all seek to achieve.
It’s powered by a woodchip boiler using home-grown fuel.
Rainwater harvesting is used to flush the toilets, a passive
ventilation system saves electricity and the spaces have
been designed to capture lots of natural daylight.
