What a great venue! So convenient by train and car.

 

Brighton Early Music Festival

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

What a find, we will be recommending!

Family Fund

I’d warmly recommend the Friends Centre at Isetta Square to anyone wanting a friendly, well-equipped training or meeting space close to Brighton station.

Sereno Ltd

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

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

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!

Rachel Mapson - BSL/English Interpreter

I’ve been really happy with the facilities provided at the Friends Centre. Everything has been just as we need it, and staff are friendly and welcoming, ready to offer help when needed. Thanks very much!

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.

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.

Excellent staff, great venue and central location!

Concordia

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

Vetwork UK

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

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.
