Facilities & Hire

Due to new social distancing measurements we have changed our hire services and you can find out more below:

  1. Seating capacity has changed so we cannot offer our usual 80 sittings, but once we understand your event further we can advise on capacity. At present its around 30 people if people sit 1.5m apart. This includes less tables but we have lots of coffee tables. Speak to us about tables required.
  2. We now offer filming and streaming of your conference or event. There is an additional charge for this but as you are paying for less delegates it often works out the same. Read more.
  3. Our food and drink service for conferences is still available but delivered in a different way. Read more here for conferences.
  4. Our food and drink service for private evening parties is still available but delivered differently. Read more here for parties.


Creative Innovation Centre is an Arts Centre that encourages the creative use of our space for activities around the development of enterprise, creativity, community and culture.

Situated in the centre of Taunton and built in the 1800’s, our majestic hall houses 20-80 people and has a large coffee bar, licensed bar and utilities area for food and drink. There are 3 car parks metres away and we hold events such as conferences, workshops, private parties, exhibitions, meetings, small trade shows and markets, live music and other similar functions.

We deliver a programme of cultural events directly and are open to suggestions with partners to widen our range of activities.

You may hire our venue and we will even add your event to our event list and even sell tickets for you online should the event be suitable.

Ideal for conferences and private parties. Licensed bar, film projection etc.

Our hall provides an attractive, creative, spacious environment for up to 100 people (depending on layout) and ideal for conference, learning and private functions.

We have a coffee bar at hand to serve refreshments and snacks and provide a buffet service for lunch or evening. Coffee offered is fresh ground Columbian filter coffee and/or standard tea or speciality teas.

There are 3 major car parks nearby and offer event promotion and ticket sales if needed.
