Life Conference & Banqueting

Bring your event to life

The Venue

Life Conference and Banqueting combines striking architecture with world-class facilities to provide a contemporary backdrop for a huge range of events. Located just two minutes' walk from Newcastle Central Station in the heart of the city, we offer everything you would expect from a sophisticated event venue, served up with an optional added spark, courtesy of our brilliant Science Centre.

With high ceilings throughout and numerous layout options, each of our eight suites has been designed with versatility in mind. Whether you need an intimate executive boardroom or 350 sqm of exhibition space, the Life team will help you find the right space for your delegate numbers and business needs.

Life Conference and Banqueting is part of the International Centre for Life - a purpose-built, pioneering science village which incorporates an award-winning visitor attraction and educational space as well as Times Square, one of Newcastle’s most attractive outdoor spaces and one of the largest open air areas available for hire in the city centre. Ideal for outdoor events, it can also accommodate your own temporary structure, canopy or marquee.

The Life Science Centre is also available to hire for partial and exclusive use. Highlights include the biggest planetarium in the North of England and the region’s only 4D Motion Ride where you can see, feel and even smell the on-screen action.

All of our indoor venues have FREE Wi-Fi available throughout.
