The Oval Room 

Our smaller room, The Oval Room, is ideal for meetings and seminars.This venue is steeped in history and is an intimate space suitable for any occasion. It can comfortably fit 12-15 people (max of 20) and is located above Jarrow Hall Café.

We can provide delicious homemade catering - refreshments, buffet-style catering and receptions with cheese and wine being our forte. Please feel free to get in touch and we will create a bespoke package tailored to your needs, at a reasonable price. Our Anglo-Saxon themed foods are sure to please your guests!

Should you need more space than what our conference room can provide, we can set up a greetings reception desk for when your guests arrive; provide our temporary exhibition space as a refreshment area, so to allow for more space in the conference room; allow your stands, stalls or pods to be located in our main museum corridor, right outside the conference room. For more information on the space available, please click the PDF below for measurements.
