Introduction

The Wellcome Genome Campus Conference Centre is a beautiful complex within the Hinxton Hall Estate and its 125-acre parkland bordering the River Cam. It is located alongside research institutions that are both at the forefront of the biomedical revolution and home to life-changing scientific history, creating a unique combination of atmosphere, history and cutting-edge science.

The Conference Centre is an impressive modern space surrounding the recently-refurbished Francis Crick Auditorium. Underneath the new glass roof lies a large, naturally-lit open venue with an event bar – ideal for informal discussion, networking, poster sessions and evening drinks – and the Campus Cultural Zone. Off the main area are two medium-large meeting rooms (Rosalind Franklin and James Watson Pavilions) that can be set up in a variety of layouts, and two small loft meeting rooms upstairs.

Hinxton Hall complements the modern Centre with three sumptuous period meeting rooms, lounges, a residents’ bar, and the Conference Centre restaurant.

Catering

Menus have been designed with catering partner Elior UK to complement the style of events at the Wellcome Genome Campus Conference Centre. If a different menu is required the Conference Centre is more than happy to suggest alternatives. Any special dietary requirements delegates may have can also be catered for.

The Conference Centre can cater for up to 300 delegates in the restaurant, and up to 500 in a marquee outdoors on the lawns.
