Meet Exhibitions


Thought about holding your exhibition at The Rufus Centre?

Our superb Lockyer Suite is the perfect venue for an exhibition. Situated on the ground floor just off the main foyer our Lockyer suite is our most prominent room. The suite is connected to a dining room by two oak doors which can be opened to make one large area linking the two rooms together or kept shut creating a separate reception area which you could use as a refreshment area for your exhibitors and guests. It also benefits from having its own kitchen and bar area should those facilities be required.
