Our venues

DMU Venues offer a selection of rooms to suit a variety of events. Our team will work with you to understand your requirements to ensure the perfect venue is offered.

The Venue@DMU

The Venue@DMU is our dedicated conference and events centre featuring a versatile hall space and two conference rooms. Our venue is ideal for East Midlands conferences, with a convenient centralised location in the heart of England. Seating up to 500 in cabaret style or over 1000 people in theatre style, our hall is perfect for large scale conferences, exhibitions, award ceremonies and performances. The hall is fitted with soundproof partitions so if a smaller space or multiple spaces are required, our flexible layout can accommodate this.



With an award-winning team of technical experts and regular investment in the latest technology, The Venue@DMU is a future-proof venue that can meet your event needs. From a lapel microphone and projector to a full production of visuals, sound and specialist lighting, our technical team will ensure your event looks and sounds spectacular.
