Friends Room (and Members Room)


The Friends Room and Members Room, situated on the ground floor, is a light and airy space with high ceilings.   It is an ideal space for a conference or a creative workshop as well as cocktail reception for up to 100 guests, standing.

The two rooms can be separated with bi-folding doors to accommodate smaller meetings or a breakout space.  They can also be hired together with the additional interlinking spaces on the ground floor, ideal as an extension to events taking place in the Great Hall.

The walls of this space are offered to Hellenic Centre Members who want to present their art work (more information about exhibiting in the Friends Room).
