Event Venues in Leicester
Leicester is centrally located in the East Midlands, a short distance from Derby and Nottingham to the north, Northampton and Milton Keynes to the south, Birmingham and Coventry to the west, and Peterborough to the east; London is 100 miles away to the south-east, Liverpool and Manchester a similar distance to the north-west.

It’s a city with strong academic links, including the University of Leicester and De Montfort University, as well as several colleges, and these are supported by dedicated conference venues – Oadby Conference Centres at the University of Leicester, and The Venue@DMU at De Montfort.

There are also plenty of meeting rooms for hire that are independent of the universities and colleges, including at major local landmarks like Leicester Racecourse, which offers conference facilities adjacent to its National Hunt horse-racing track.

Absolute Venues work with privately owned conference venues and their operators to offer modern, fully appointed facilities with the kind of character you want for your upcoming event, whether you want a conventional conference room in a hotel, or a banqueting hall in a castle.

We are able to work to your set list of criteria, including any preferences about the type of venue you want, and essentials such as the size and type of event you are planning, and when and where exactly you want it to take place.

The shortlist we put together from your enquiry will only feature venues that are a close match for your criteria – we will not waste your time with unsuitable premises just for the sake of adding another option to the list.

Ultimately we want to whittle down the options to just a handful of the very best locations; our free venue finding service should mean you need to make only minimal visits in person to confirm that a particular venue on our list suits your needs.

Once you’ve made a decision, place your booking through Absolute Venues – as repeat customers of the venues we work with, we are often able to negotiate a better deal on your behalf than you would get if you were to book with the venue directly.
