The Lindley Hall was designed by Edwin J Stebbs, and his focus on achieving as much natural light as possible remains a key part of the character of the building more than 100 years later. The space, light and elegance inherent in its Edwardian design create a breathtaking effect for organisers and visitors alike.

The Lindley Hall continues to set a gold standard for every type of event, hosting dinners, exhibitions, fashion shows, receptions, weddings, product launches and more, both public and private. It also provides a stunning backdrop for filming, car launches and adverts . Organisers are able to take advantage of the Hall’s stunning glass-vaulted ceiling fitted with blinds, for an abundance of natural light or can opt for full blackout.
