David Livingstone Birthplace Fun

Room Hire

Thank you for looking into booking an events space with us. We have numerous rooms available that can be used for almost any occasion. For all these events and bookings, we require that you use the café’s catering!

The Red Room, which can seat 48 people, is in the Pavilion, across from the café. It is great for birthday parties or special celebrations, such as first communions. This space is also appropriate for exercise classes and mindfulness sessions.

The Blue Room is slightly smaller and often used for small group meetings. It can accommodate 8 to 12 people.

The Nature Gazebo is used for outside events, such as picnics or outside celebrations during the summer.

The Gallery Space is inside the main building. It can host crafts, workshops, and exhibitions. It is an excellent space for significant group events.

If you wish to inquire about any booking, please contact the David Livingstone Centre team at +44 141 3753105 or email us at info@dltrust.uk.
