Spaces at Arthur C. Clarke House


The Golovine Lecture Hall is a multi-purpose room with built-in AV and video recording, ceiling projector, retractable screen and adjustable light levels. The room comes with permanent seating on two sides, and the option for up to 50 seated. The Technology and Concepts Annex is a smaller room off the Golovine Hall, decorated with artefacts, concept models, and pictures of space related endeavours. The rooms can be used as a continuation of each other, or can be designated for different uses.


The Council Room is a prestige boardroom decorated with aspects of the BIS' art, pottery and furniture collections, situated on the top floor. The Council Room is on the second floor, and benefits from the privacy of being away from the main traffic areas of the building, allowing for meetings and discussions to happen uninterrupted from outside disturbances. All Council Room bookings come with complementary use of a 40" LCD screen with HDMI connection; free Wi-Fi; and Nespresso Vertuo coffee machine, tea and bottled still water.


The L.J. Carter Library is the home to an extensive collection of reference and research archives related to space exploration and the history of the Society, dating back to the founding of the BIS in 1933. This unique and historic collection tells the story of space travel, academic research and contains key papers from space agencies from around the world. The Library has been used previously as a filming venue and offers a backdrop that enhances any production. It can also be used for talks, and breakout and small seminar groups. Refreshments will not be available in the Library.
