Space for your Training to succeed

Inspire staff in a function room like no other

Motivate your team by booking a training venue set in the heart of the countryside, and enjoy a meeting room with a view.

Supported by a team of professional, dedicated staff, we can provide excellent facilities for your staff training day. The self-contained facilities of the Lindfield Suite cater for groups of up 30 people.

For a larger event, choose one of the five rooms in the light and contemporary Norfolk Pavilion next door. All our rooms are just a few steps away from a refreshing break in the open air. We can supply all necessary AV facilities and catering services you’ll need to deliver an effective and enjoyable day out of the office for your work colleagues. Our in-house caterers can provide a delicious menu using the very best fresh, locally-sourced produce, incorporating any specific dietary requirements.

What a fantastic Venue. Easy to use and set in a great and beautiful location with good access and a very helpful and professional support team

MPM Events Ltd - Patrick Turner
Organiser, The World of Park and Leisure Homes Show

As a conference centre, the showground at Ardingly has always delivered a first class service. The venue is large and provides sufficient car-parking spaces. Being in the centre of Sussex - its easily accessible - no matter what direction you are coming from. The conference facilities are clean, spacious and elevated overlooking the grounds. The catering is exquisite and always served at the appropriate time. I would highly recommend this venue to those that run seminars, training days or management meetings.

Our first impressive of the room (Ardingly Room, Norfolk Pavilion) when we walked in was impressive, it was beautifully laid out. The food was excellent and there was nothing that could have been improved upon.

Kathy Flood
Sussex County Bowls Luncheon and Prizegiving

We have had so much positive feedback, including “the venue was great” and “the refreshments were excellent”. We can’t thank you enough for all your support – it made all the difference and I know it will lead to many more local events. This was a great start to the scheme in a fantastic setting.

Mid Sussex South Community Voluntary Service

I just wanted to say very many thanks to all involved with organising and catering for Mother's funeral tea. From our perspective, from set up to close, it could not have been smoother and, given the circumstances, it was lovely to know that everything was in hand so that we had nothing to worry about. We cannot think of anything that could have been improved upon and it was exactly as we had hoped for. Our guests were comfortable and relaxed and they obviously enjoyed the food - some very favourable comments were made with recommendations to others along the lines of 'you must just try.
