Highfields Cultural Centre features a large and versatile purpose built auditorium. This space can be easily adapted to suit most events from tricky break-outs to a full theatrical performance, while still hosting intimate weddings and dinners. With a space to suit any event, the Highfields Cultural Centre offers diversity in the form of several break-out areas including the boardroom, rear bar, garden area, stage, mezzanine and community corner.
No two events are the same and we will work with you to customise a plan to suit your function needs. Arrange a tour and meeting with one of our Function Coordinators, so that we can show you the capabilities of the centre and what we have to offer for your next event.
