Bournville College now provides a quality venue for your next business event

This week saw us head over to visit the new Bournville College to have a meeting with a number of its personnel as well as a tour around the college and its facilities.


For those that may not beware Bournville College used to be situated on the Bristol Road between the Selly Oak and Northfield areas of Birmingham.


In August 2011 it moved to its new £63 million purpose built facility on what once was part of the old MG Rover site, and in all honesty as you drive down the Bristol Road towards the Lickey Hills you will not be able to miss the new college as it is colourfully situated by the main set of traffic lights where you turn left for Longbridge Train Station.


Our tour around the college was spearheaded by Catherine Hepton who is their events co-ordinator.


Something which you may not know is that the college now has ‘State of the Art’ conferencing / venue hosting facilities – for instance their main room which can seat up to 200 people for a sit down dinner has eco friendly technologies whereby it recycles the air to keep it at any given required temperature.


Also within the main room the latest technologies for film and sound exist along with fancy projection provisions.


They also have a number of other smaller rooms available which can be used for training, workshops, seminars, even interviewing  all of which are at a competitive rate of hire,– as Catherine expressed upon us “our costings are considerable cheaper, all I ask for is the opportunity to provide businesses with a quote.”


For those who may think against considering using conferencing / venue hosting facilities of a college, you wouldn’t be disappointed with the ones at Bournville College plus it has its own separate entrance so there is no need to have to walk all through the college, plus the fact you would not be allowed to do so unaccompanied due to the strict security measures which they have in place.


You may have been to events held at the technology park which is situated across from Bourneville College – however, for those of you who may look to use venue facilities an alternative option is available. To arrange a tour contact Catherine Hepton so that you can see what they have to offer for yourself.
