All the ladies on my table had an absolutely fantastic time and agreed that it was the best Christmas event that we have attended in a very long time. Everything from the décor/setting, the amazing food, friendly staff and great DJ who kept us dancing most of the night - all combined to give us a wonderful evening and put us all in the festive mood

At the height of the Cuban Missile Crisis. We worked on the principal that WW3 was imminent, and Portsmouth Guildhall would be a good aiming point. And instead of suffering, we decided we’d go out with a bang and head to the Guildhall steps.”

Let’s plan an unforgettable event

We partner with Ecologi to plant trees and offset carbon impact!


We are committed to reducing our environmental impact. We fund the planting of 100 trees for every Conferencing event held in the Main Auditorium through our partner, Ecologi. Ecologi aims to reduce global CO2 emissions by 50% by 2040 and responsibly plant billions of trees annually. The organisation has already planted 50 million trees and has offset 2.2 million tonnes of CO2e through projects verified by Verra’s Verified Carbon Standard and Gold Standard.
