Thank you very much to all the team at Friends Centre for all your help in making sure our English language and cultural studies course ran smoothly. The teaching rooms were fully equipped, very clean and well set out making an ideal learning environment for our students. The building is easy to get to with plenty of parking nearby and is very quiet which helps make it an ideal place to study. Once again thank you to all the team for all your help. We look forward to returning to teach more courses soon!

Salmantica Cours

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.

Really lovely space. Very welcoming space and wonderful staff!

FTM Brighton

Thank you for the flexibility in helping us to run our first course here – timing, allowing us to cater for ourselves, space for our people to work on their own – crucial for planning their micro teaching for the next day!

Brighton Permaculture Trust

We are always looking for good quality & well managed venues for our community courses and the Friends Centre exceeded all our expectations. The room was excellently equipped with everything we required and it was lovely to be able to turn up and find the room exactly as we wanted it. Staff were incredibly friendly & helpful and all this enabled us to have a smooth and enjoyable training session. Thank you!

Sussex Community NHS Trust

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.

Money Advice and Community Support (MACS)

A very reliable and well-maintained venue: we regularly use the Friend’s Centre for a variety of functions and services, as it is also very reasonably priced/competitive. The staff are organised and able to give flexible options, and are happy to help solve problems.

Excellent facilities at a fair price, supported by friendly and helpful staff – and there’s a cafe! What more could you ask?

Engi Ltd, Projects, Training and Parliamentary Advocacy for Conflict Management

 

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!!

NIA Ending Violence Against Women and Children

The rooms were comfortable and well equipped, and the staff really helpful, friendly and welcoming. We’ll definitely book again if meeting in Brighton.
