Are looking for somewhere local to celebrate your special day? Our stunning Atrium at our Josephine Butler Campus could be just the venue for you!

With the capacity to fit 400 seated (banquet style), the Atrium at Josephine Butler is a popular hire in Ashington. Offering flexible space to accommodate your guests in style and comfort, the Atrium, which benefits from high ceilings and stunning natural light, as well as double-height balconies for those all important group photos on the dancefloor, the venue really is one of South East Northumberland's hidden gems.

Along with our Dining Room and Hall Spaces, the Atrium is available to hire at evenings and weekends throughout the year with closures only during bank holidays and extended opening hours during school holidays. We can also offer outdoor space should you wish to erect a marquee for your event.
