The Hastings Centre is a premier conference facility in the 1066 area. It was originally built as an indoor sports centre, but has been extensively refurbished over the last 20 years, becoming a high-quality business, leisure and conference venue.
In 2013, we continued the Hastings Centre’s transformation: today, it’s hired for business breakfasts, board meetings, exhibitions, seminars, awards ceremonies, quiz nights, blood donation, policing training, sports, live music events and more.
From our 800-seater main auditorium to small breakout rooms for just a few people; from our multi-purpose sports room to our outdoor patio and children’s play area – we have facilities to cater for a very diverse range of events.
Speaking of catering, we have an on-site coffee shop and a commercial kitchen, so we’re able to cater for any event – whether it’s a three-course meal, an afternoon tea or a simple buffet, an in-house catering team offers a wide choice of menu. We can run a licensed bar, or provide fresh coffee, tea and fruit juice.
The Hastings Centre is set in an area of outstanding natural beauty and you can enjoy the view from our patio area or even hire the 1.5 acre field for your event. We are situated in a tranquil and easily accessible location, opposite the Conquest Hospital on The Ridge. Our single-level pay-and-display car park can accommodate more than 160 cars, with additional spaces nearby.
We aim to run the Hastings Centre as a social enterprise, meaning that we invest the profits into the good of the local community.
Whether you’re looking for the ideal location for your board meeting, exhibition, exercise class, awards ceremony or staff team-building day, the Hastings Centre has everything you need. We look forward to welcoming you.
The Hastings Centre is owned by King’s Church.
