Situated in the heart of the historic university city of Cambridge, the Corn Exchange is an impressive example of Victorian architecture, combined with 21st Century technology and full disabled access.

One of the leading concert venues of the UK, the venue offers above all S P A C E in the heart of the city - space which is flexible, well serviced and expertly staffed and is large enough to cater up to thirteen hundred delegates.

It is large enough to play host to some of the biggest names from the entertainment world of rock and pop with an audience of over 1800, a Motor Show, or even a Beer Festival. It is also versatile enough to accommodate a lavish reception, product launch or private dinner.

The diversity of events at the Corn Exchange is matched by the variety of catering services on offer, from sandwiches for a few to a full banquet.

The Corn Exchange itself - a listed Victorian building is highly impressive even when empty - set up for a conference it has few equals.
