Ideal For

Exhibitions, Meetings, Receptions

The Derham Lounge is an extremely dynamic venue within the Winter Gardens complex. Originally constructed in 1897, the room has had many guises, including being used as a cafe.

It now serves as a multi-purpose room, having been stripped back to its original state, resulting in one of the smaller, more intimate spaces the Winter Gardens has to offer.

Overall, the venue has a capacity of 300. It is commonly used as a smaller venue within large conferences, but can also be used as a compact and independent events space for small events, such as drinks receptions.

Venue features

  • The Derham Lounge can be accessed from street level and boasts public entrances both from the building and street level.
  • Whilst no rigging is present, freestanding sound and light solutions can be provided.
  • The space is most often used as an exhibition and meeting space.  

We have a dedicated conference and events team who will deal with your enquiry. They will provide you with any additional information, as well as arranging a visit to the venue.

If you are unsure of your exact needs, the events team will be able to assist. It is their goal to make the events organisation process as seamless as possible. We also offer a range of event and hospitality planning services.
