Spaces at People's History Museum


The Engine Hall is a brilliant, memorable setting for a business conference, seminar, or training session. The Hall has 240 square meters of space, with a magnificent front facade that stretches up to the ornate glass ceiling. The beautifully restored tiled walls make this a stunning venue. The space is highly flexible, can be combined with our other spaces for registration and refreshment areas.


The Coal Store Conference Room is, as the name suggests, a highly unique setting for a conference, training session or seminar. The original features of the coal store that fuelled the pump house are there to enjoy: redbrick walls, steel roofing girders, and a high ceiling with windows at the top. This room offers a striking alternative to regular meeting rooms.


The Meeting Room at the People's History Museum offers a bright, spacious venue for board meetings, smaller training sessions and workshops. The room has lovely curved windows, white walls and a high ceiling, giving it an open, airy feel. We can supply AV equipment as required, as well as delicious refreshments from our cafe. Minimum 10 guests for a DDR rate, up to 20 theatre style.
