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

Bruna (tutor) Sagitter Training

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

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.

Greenpeace

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.

Lovely venue and the staff were very helpful. Fabulous!

China UK Culture and Commerce Association Ltd

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.

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

 

Everyone was so helpful and it made training here so less stressful – from the beginning phone call – to just now at the end – it has been the best venue we have used to deliver our training. Delegates said it was the best food they had ever had at a training day!! I wish we could carry on at Friends Centre but we’re on the train to elsewhere now. I hope we come back here!!

We are always looking for good quality & well managed venues for our community courses and the Friends Centre exceeded all our expectations.

Staff were incredibly friendly & helpful and all this enabled us to have a smooth and enjoyable training session. Thank you!
