National Civil War Centre

Conferences and Meetings

Whatever you're discussing, from battlefield strategy to boardroom tactics, the National Civil War Centre has the perfect space for you. Host of the 2019 AIM Conference, the venue has a variety of spaces and is an ideal location for small meetings, workshops and even conventions with up to 600 guests.

Newark is located in the centre of the country with excellent transport links. There are two train stations within walking distance of the museum and we are just a 10 minute drive from the A1. Couple this with nearby parking and a central town location, and we make a great day out for your guests!

We have a number of spaces which can be used flexibly to suit your needs. All our rooms can be set up in cabaret, cinema or boardroom style with projector, microphone and laptop included. Discounts are also available to not-for-profit organisations and for multiple bookings.

Our own fantastic team at Café Nineteen20 can offer a range of catering options from teas and coffees to pastries and delicious buffet lunches while our experienced events team will work with you to advise on spaces and liaise with any 3rd party suppliers.
