The Nave is a stunning venue for your workshop, talk, organisational away-day, film-showing, concert, party or music event, and is equipped with projector, sound system and microphones, and an upright piano. High ceilings, original arches, a stained glass window and fascinating history provide a wonderful atmosphere. The Bedouin Tent is a magical and unique space set in a beautiful courtyard garden. Woven from goats hair, and built on principles of sacred geometry, it is a harmonious space where people can meet as equals. It is perfect for dialogue, workshops, meetings and away days. We’d love to hear from you – please get in touch to check availability.
