Conferences and events
If you are an event organiser you are welcome to use the auditorium at the Bradfield Centre free of charge, as long you meet three simple conditions:
- your content is of relevance to the local tech community
- members of the Bradfield Centre can attend your event
- you do not charge people to attend
- High-speed WiFi
- 2 x 84" Ultra HD LCD screens
- A selection of microphones
- A selection of furniture options
The auditorium is offered on a self service "Plug & Play" basis. Please note we do not employ staff to maintain the space so we ask that you kindly leave the room as you find it, ready for the next event to use.
The auditorium is located on the ground floor with step free access. There are 6 marked disabled parking bays on site.
Catering is available on site, and you are also free to bring in your own catering as you see fit. We encourage you to take a tour, see the space and chat to our team about your individual event requirements, or you can send us a booking request online from here.
Eating & drinking
Open to the public from 7.30am - 4pm Monday to Friday, the Lakeside cafe is managed by Charlton House.
We are a long-established catering company, based in Berkshire but with sites all over the UK. We are a bit obsessive about finding the best possible ingredients for the best possible prices, while ensuring that we don’t take our eye off where our ingredients come from. We are proud to have supported Red Tractor Assurance for the past 8 years, meaning you can be sure that our food has been produced with care for both the environment and the animals involved. It also means that much of our fresh produce is produced in the UK, reducing food miles and supporting British farmers.
We are planning all sorts of new ideas for the Lakeside restaurant over the coming months, so stay tuned! We are also keen to hear what you would like to see, so do fill in a comment card to ensure we get the message.
Our aim is to provide a great service that supports your time at work, giving you a pleasant break and a sustaining meal to keep you going for the rest of the day.
Our baristas Nico and Dimitri serve a range of hot drinks including Grumpy Mule coffee. A wide selection of fresh healthy food is prepared on site by Chef Manager Dave - weekly menus are published here.
