The New Room Conference


The New Room has been a venue for people to meet and engage with since John Wesley opened the building in 1739. Their offer of hospitality continues today with four distinct spaces available for hire on the site: the 18th century chapel; the 21st century Horsefair Courtyard building and atrium space; and two dedicated meeting rooms.

The Horsefair Room
This conference/education suite can accommodate up to 50 people in various configurations. It is located on the third floor of the visitor centre in the Horsefair Courtyard and can be accessed via stairs or lift. The suite has state-of-the-art audio and visual equipment in place for projections and presentations plus there is an adjoining balcony available as a breakout area. The suite also has its own servery which can be included with a hiring.

Chapel Meeting Room
This room can accommodate up to 8 people and is located within the old vestry in the chapel. The room is self-contained and has been sound-proofed to ensure privacy. The room has state-of-the-art audio and visual equipment in place for projections and presentations plus a hearing loop.

The Chapel
In addition to their two meeting spaces, the 18th century chapel at the New Room is available to hire and has, over the years, hosted a wide variety of events such as concerts, recitals, conferences, exhibitions and theatrical performances as well as staring in a number of major TV dramas and documentaries. This 400-seat capacity space has an intimate, unique atmosphere that is particularly highlighted during evening performances with the use of candles.

The Horsefair Atrium
If you’re looking for a modern, dramatic space in the city centre then consider the atrium in the new Horsefair Courtyard building. This three-storey space, located next to the Café at the New Room, offers wonderful acoustics for musical performances and other events such as book launches or talks. Their award winning café can provide a range of catering options based on your requirements from drinks receptions to buffet lunches.

The New Room itself is located in the heart of the Bristol Shopping Quarter with pedestrian entrances from both Broadmead and Horsefair. It is easily accessible using public transport links with local bus services, three Park & Ride services and Bristol Bus & Coach Station all within a three-minute walk of the New Room. Bristol Temple Meads railway station is a fifteen-minute walk and there is a taxi rank just along from the Horsefair entrance. Although there is no on-site parking at the New Room, there are over 5000 car parking spaces available within a five-minute walk.
