Best New or Refurbished Venue 2018
CCT Venues-Docklands underwent an extensive refurbishment earlier this year and re-opened its doors in May 2018. Our stylish new space replaced a large somewhat uninspiring venue. It now comprises of 14 versatile meeting rooms to suit a variety of events for up to 250 delegates, a contemporary restaurant, separate Sugar Lounge and large waterfront terrace with great views of the river. The new design has been inspired from the Docklands’ history, with striking wall art showing original Docklands scenes through the ages.
We are proud of the changes especially the innovative design quirks, including the Docks-themed décor and the easy-to-navigate layout. Also our state of the art technology and equipment, with features like large plasma screens in each room, digital signage, adjustable multi coloured lighting and ultra fast internet and Wi-Fi.
Our great events team provide a professional and personalised service to our clients on a daily basis and ensure their experience of our venue is a cut above the rest. We are a small independent business with plenty of personality and the great feedback and bookings we’ve had for the new space so far speaks for itself.
