H A N G A R O N E
Hangar One offers a unique venue for all manner of events from Wedding Receptions, Awards Nights and Charity Balls to Product Launches, Exhibitions and Conferences.
Hangar One is a self contained venue complete with its own large kitchen, private bar and toilet facilities, as well as ample free parking.
The main hall is 110ft x 70ft with a ceiling height of 19ft in the centre and 8ft at the sides. The hangar door gives a clear access of 47ft wide by 12ft 4 ins high. The floor is designed to take the weight of forklifts, trucks, aircraft etc.
The venue can comfortably accommodate up to 500 people for a banquet or conference.
Hangar One is adjacent to the Aviator Hotel and overlooks the busy grass runways of Sywell Aerodrome, one of the finest airfields in the country.
Hangar One was originally 3 smaller hangars, erected in 1941 to house aircraft used to train RAF pilots during World War II. In 1948 they were combined to form the current single large hangar and in 2000 the hangar was completely renovated, transforming it into an exciting new venue.
The bar and kitchen are built into the southern gable end and a passage to the east side connects the Hangar to the Aerodrome Bar and Restaurant. Large doors in the north gable enable access for your equipment, vehicles - or aircraft.
The Hangar is fully insulated and carpeted, with extensive air extraction, lighting and audio systems. Extensive use of wood veneer, period features and sympathetic lighting provides the appropriate ambience for any occasion.
A customer recently informed us that their market research had shown that The Aviator Hotel with Hangar One and Hangar Two is the fourth largest conference centre in the UK. So if you are looking for a large venue, we are here and ready for business. We believe there is a market locally for the conference combined with an exhibition type event normally hosted at London venues at London prices.
