A Grade II* listed Abbey in Northampton is opening its doors to businesses in 2017.
With a grand opening planned for summer, Delapré Abbey will be returned to its glory days with support from around 150 volunteers.
The work was made possible by a £3.65-million pledge from the Heritage Lottery Fund and support from Northampton Borough Council.
Founded in medieval times, the Abbey is a stunning location for everything from large presentations and meetings to smaller workshops, board meetings and seminars.
Originally founded in 1145 by the Earl of Northampton as a Cluniac nunnery, then enjoyed by two notable families, and latterly converted into the home for the Northamptonshire Record Office, the building boasts intriguing and unusual features whilst being surrounded by vast parkland and gardens.
There are six air conditioned rooms of varying sizes, all of which have access to plasma screens and video conferencing equipment, offering maximum flexibility. Rooms on the top floor overlook the beautiful South Lawn and parkland at Delapré.
Rachael Boyd, director at Delapré, said: “While the setting is steeped in history, you’ll find all contemporary conveniences at your fingertips.
“We have broadband and WiFi available throughout the building, catering is available to each meeting room, or you can visit our beautiful café for refreshments.
“Each of our business suites has state-of-the-art equipment and support is on-hand to ensure your event goes without a hitch.”
Whatever the business requirement, a dedicated and experienced events team will ease the planning process and ensure a successful event.
This venue is ideally situated near junction 15 of the M1, just a mile from Northampton town centre.
