The Priory Rooms congratulate their sister venues Woodbrooke and Friends House for both recently achieving incredible awards. Woodbrooke Quaker Study Centre in Birmingham has received the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence and Friends House in London have been named Carbon Champions for Camden. These awards recognise their commitment to outstanding customer service and socially responsible behaviour. All of the sister venues prioritise these values and are incredibly proud of each other’s success.
Woodbrooke Quaker Study Centre have been awarded the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence. The centre based in Selly Oak, Birmingham will run over 150 courses and retreats throughout 2015. Its historic building is surrounded by 10 acres of organically managed gardens, offering a beautiful and inspiring location for adult learners. Their Trip Advisor award is recognition of the quality, quantity and recency of opinions submitted by travellers on Trip Advisor over a 12-month period; testament to the hard work of the staff and volunteers.
Friends House have been declared Carbon Champions in Camden by Camden Climate Change Alliance. The award is recognition of their enduring efforts not only to reduce their own impact on the environment but also to influence and support the local and wider community in living and working more sustainably. Since 2009 Friends House has reduced its total emissions by 22% and is working to continue these reductions. The award comes just after their unique venue space “The Light” won a Regional Royal Institute of British Architects Award. The Light is a magnificent refurbishment of the Quaker Meeting House's Main Hall. It features a breath-taking skylight over the 1,000 seater contemporary space and careful eco-conscious design; it embraces efficiency in its lighting, insulation and temperature control.
