Creating your event

With our extensive in-house event management experience, we are accustomed to organising both small and large scale events and conferences. It is this experience, combined with our unrivalled ability to make our events that little bit special, which has made The City Rooms one of the most prestigious conference venues in Leicester and the East Midlands.

The Grade 1 listed building in the heart of Leicester City Centre, offers a wonderful combination of traditional elegance and tranquillity with modern functionality. Comprising three function suites, we cater for small and large conferences alike. All are fully accessible, including the Ballroom which has lift access.
