This month, Downing College opened its doors to new clients at a special reception to showcase its conference and events facilities, including the newly-refurbished Howard Building which has just undergone a six-month major refurbishment programme to improve its energy efficiency and green credentials.
Clients from regional businesses and organisations were looking for facilities for a wide range of events from residential conferences to private dinners. In addition to sampling the award-winning food and Pimms, guests were also taken on showrounds by the Conference Team.
“They were particularly keen to see the Howard Theatre, an environmentally-sustainable building with ground-source heating and cooling, as well as our hotel-standard bedrooms and award-winning College Hall.
“It was an excellent opportunity to showcase what we can offer for events of all types and sizes and the feedback we received was very positive.”
