The Royal Armouries Museum, at the beautiful Leeds Dock development on the River Aire in central Leeds, is one of the region’s landmark buildings. The venue offers eleven variously sized event spaces with a total capacity across the venue of over 4,000 delegates. The venue’s stunning flagship space, New Dock Hall, is a popular and flexible space for corporate conferences and events with a capacity of over 1,000 delegates.
There is also the contemporary, purpose-built plug and play Bury Theatre, with a capacity of 250 delegates. This attractive, hi-tech space is ideal for corporate business and adds to the different options for event organisers working within the portfolio.
“It’s been a great few years for the venue, and we are well known and liked for what we do here,” commented Rod Taylor, Chief Operating Officer of the Royal Armouries. “We are an ambitious business and now we want to go on to the next level for quality of service to grow the business. By working with powerful national partners we can position the Royal Armouries at the forefront of the growth that we’re seeing right across Leeds, as the city continues to make its mark on the UK events industry."
“The Royal Armouries and New Dock, Leeds really compliments our other Northern venues and gives us a great opportunity to place conference, meetings and events business into Leeds,” comments Jo Austin, Sales Director, Lime Venue Portfolio. “Our ambition is to absolutely make sure we have the very best event spaces across every area of the UK, and the Royal Armouries has become the latest, very major, string to our incredibly powerful bow!”
