Testimonials from previous customers:

Really lovely space. Very welcoming space and wonderful staff!

FTM Brighton

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.

Business consultant, Bailey & French

What a find, we will be recommending!

Family Fund

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

Friends Centre have been a great venue for running our NHS group. The room is always prepared on time and the staff here have been really helpful. Staff are always around to approach if needed.

 

B&H Wellbeing Group (NHS)

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

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

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 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!

Rachel Mapson - BSL/English Interpreter

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

 

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

Great venue, great location, friendly staff.

Greenpeace

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.

Ed Huxley Local People Programme

A sanctuary for training; clear, calm, caring and comfortable.
