The room we hired was very well equipped and immaculate in terms of decor and cleanliness. It was set up for us well in advance and the Friends Centre staff very accommodating. The ambience was peaceful which contributed to a very focussed and productive day.

Thank you for having us!

Excellent staff, great venue and central location!

Concordia

I was leading an 8-week course and desperately looking for a venue that was close to the station, reasonable and provided a computer, projector and white board. The Friends Centre provided all of this and more! Our room was light and airy, with more than enough space for 20 people to move around comfortably. The staff were always very friendly and attentive and stepped in whenever we needed assistance with anything. I hope to run the course again in the future and I will definitely be coming back to the Friends Centre! Thank you so much.

Thanks for hosting us – it has been a great experience in a large room with lots of laptops and good Wifi connection. My students were happy to be here. They could work hard and they were really satisfied. The people are welcoming and helpful

The venue was perfect. We loved the ecological aspects of the building. Staff were very accommodating and ensured the day was a huge success.

The WordTherapy Centre

Excellent location in Central Brighton and the staff are extremely helpful and accommodating. The delegates complimented the caterer on the delicious lunch provided.

Brighton & Hove City Council

I really enjoyed working with the Friends Centre. Communication leading up to and during our bookings was fast, and efficient. EJ was very flexible, and willing to adjust the booking to our needs on several occasions, which I really appreciated! Overall we had very positive feedback from teachers and students about their experience here.

Castle School of English

We booked a room at the Friends Centre for a workshop. The location was great, close to the station and the room was well equipped with a projector/ smart board, WI-FI and refreshments – all provided at a good price. We would definitely book again and were impressed with the values of the organisation and the sustainability credentials of the building.

Urbed Ltd

Great venue, great location, friendly staff.

Greenpeace

A great location, close to parking in Brighton. The welcome was friendly & professional. The facilities were great with the use of computer & Smart Board. We would use the venue again.

Albion in the Community

We came down to Brighton from London for our away day. We have used the Friends Centre before and it is our venue of choice each time.

Newman Francis Ltd

Friendliness & efficiency were evident right from my initial enquiry about room hire, throughout the booking process and on the day of the meeting itself. The rooms are light and spacious but the Centre doesn’t have the clinical feel of some new builds, and the ambiance is a very positive one. Its central location, close to the station, makes it a very convenient venue and I’ll definitely be booking it again!
