Your conference venue in Somerset

Located between Bridgwater and Taunton within 5 minutes drive of the M5 motorway (junction 24) and 45 minutes from Bristol and Exeter airports, North Petherton Community Centre is one of the largest and most affordable conference venues in this part of Somerset and provides a number of options for your conference, seminar, training day or product launch.

The community centre offers a choice of two halls, each with their own facilities which – since they can be linked by interconnecting doors – can either be hired separately or together. The Main Hall, with a modular stage, can accommodate 250 delegates with theatre-style seating, while the Small Hall is suitable for smaller conferences or meetings of up to 106 with a theatre layout. Alternatively, if your conference is taking place in the Main Hall, then the Small Hall is ideal for use as a large breakout room or for serving refreshments to a large group.

If you hire the Main Hall, then the Committee Room, which connects the Main Foyer and Main Hall, is perfect for delegate registration, and can also be used as a small breakout room or for serving refreshments via the serving hatch from well equipped kitchen. Although we don't provide catering ourselves, we are aware of local caterers who may be able to assist. The Committee Room is also fitted with a fully licensed bar, available by prior arrangement.

Dedicated pages illustrate the main room layouts that are possible in the Main Hall and the Small Hall, together with the their capacities.

While the Community Centre is well used, particularly in the late afternoon and evenings on week days, we do have suitable slots in our schedules that enable us to accommodate conferences, seminars and training days too. For further information or to check availability, please do contact us.
