Throughout the year
Keble is delighted to be able to offer facilities for Day Meetings throughout the year.
During term time these can be hosted at The H B Allen Centre, whilst in vacation periods the whole College can be utilised.
The H B Allen Centre is a very contemporary venue providing a perfect self-contained base for conferences or large meetings.
The main lecture theatre offers Harvard style seating for up to 75 and capacity in total for 100. We can also offer a selection of breakout and seminar rooms all within touching distance of the central lawns of the Quad, allowing easy transition between different event activities. These include the Glen Callater, an ideal exhibition space with floor to ceiling windows, and Mille’s and Minnie’s, with areas perfectly set up for small seminars or workshops. The on-site Robin Geffen Cafeteria also provides a dedicated space for meals and refreshment breaks when needed, although these can also be served in the smaller meeting rooms.
The main Keble site is characterised by its distinctive red brick Victorian architecture and welcoming feel.
Day Meetings or Conferences can utilise all part of our facilities as part of an event programme, including two lecture theatres, 16 breakout rooms and the lawns in the four main Quads, as well as having access to the Dining Hall. The space is extremely flexible and can be used however you need, within reason! In the past we have welcomed everything from Government Departments to Alpacas.
