Trinity Hall's new conference venue WYNG Gardens

Trinity Hall announce new conference centre at WYNG Gardens

Trinity Hall's new conference, events and accommodation venue in central Cambridge will feature outstanding facilities

Posted by Hannah Oakman | January 29, 2016 | Events

Opening in December 2016, WYNG Gardens offers high spec, attractive and contemporary interiors with conference facilities for up to 100 delegates and 72 en-suite double bedrooms. Situated on Thompson’s Lane, off Bridge Street, WYNG Gardens provides a much-coveted city centre location for residential conferences and day meetings. 

Glen Sharp, Junior Bursar at Trinity Hall, said: “WYNG Gardens is an asset to Trinity Hall, providing outstanding facilities and accommodation. This flexible conferencing space combines innovative interiors and lighting to create a positive, vibrant and uplifting environment for learning and development. Working closely with our architects, we have given a great deal of consideration to the design of WYNG Gardens to ensure it remains sensitive to the nature of the buildings in Thompson’s Lane.”

The Cambridge-based architects for the building, Freeland Rees Roberts Architects, of which Tristan Rees-Roberts is a Trinity Hall alumnus, said: 'WYNG Gardens offers high quality, contemporary conference facilities and accommodation whilst sitting comfortably and confidently within its historic setting.” Working closely with Trinity Hall, the architects ensured the highest quality interiors and finishes for this new centre for academia and residential conferences.

Rachel Mortimer Holdsworth, Head of Conference and Catering Services at Trinity Hall, said: “Cambridge is proving more popular than ever as a destination for holding conferences and events. WYNG Gardens offers us the opportunity to welcome new and returning visitors to the heart of our stunning and historic city.  We are excited to share our new building and facilities as well as our historic rooms and fine dining at Trinity Hall and to help showcase the best of all that Cambridge has to offer visitors.”

 

Just a five-minute walk away from WYNG Gardens is Trinity Hall’s historic Central Site. One of the oldest and most beautiful of the Cambridge colleges, Trinity Hall enjoys stunning architecture and riverside grounds and offers additional conference facilities, fine dining and 150 traditional bedrooms. The two venues complement each other perfectly for large multi-site events – the rich heritage of Trinity Hall contrasting with the contemporary interiors of WYNG Gardens.  

An additional 100 en-suite bedrooms are also available at the nearby Wychfield Site on Storey’s Way, less than one mile from Cambridge city centre. Winner of the award for ‘best new building’ in the 2010 David Urwin architectural awards, Wychfield offers spacious bedrooms and attractive sweeping grounds, ideal for large-scale marquee events.

Tours of the new facilities at WYNG Gardens will be available later in the year and any inquiries should be directed to the Conference and Events team at Trinity Hall.
