Inspirational Conferences & Events
The concept of Inspirational Conventions & Events
With its award winning conference services and facilities, Weetwood Hall strives to be at the forefront of innovation, and hosting Inspirational Conferences & Events is the latest effort to achieve this. We will research a range of topics and themes, each of which will be developed, organised and hosted by Weetwood Hall in conjunction with a specialist conference director.

The various conferences and events may include residential conferences with partner programmes along with non-residential delegates and a limited numbers of spaces reserved for scholarship placements where applicable.

Each event includes the services and expertise of a Specialist Programme Director who will agree the conference objectives, set the programme framework, coordinate the appointment of key-note speakers and assist in identifying suitable external events and excursions where applicable.


"The annual International Medieval Congress (IMC) has been using Weetwood Hall since 1994. Weetwood Hall is the ideal venue for a conference such as the annual IMC. Each year, we have over 1600 people descending on Weetwood Hall (and the adjacent Bodington Hall - a student hall of residence). We use the majority of bedrooms and 15 lecture rooms for the Congress for the duration of one week in July.

The exclusivity of the Weetwood Hall site (in wonderfully green surroundings) makes it ideal for networking, to provide a dawn-til dusk venue (and beyond) with the convenience of a range of food outlets (from Woodlands and Brasserie to an award winning traditional pub). The bedrooms, conference rooms and their equipment are excellent and versatile, and allow for plenty of flexibility and any last-minute adjustments.

All in all, an ideal environment for an Inspirational Conventions &Events."
- Axel E. W. Müller Director, International Medieval Congress, University of Leeds.
Who can attend?
Inspirational Conventions & Events may be targeted to a specialist delegate or academic audience or alternatively be for novices, enthusiasts and experts who wish to take a part, to listen, reflect, network and share knowledge. We offer a welcoming and friendly environment where you can engage with the programme. In some circumstances we may also be offering scholarship places.

What subjects are considered?
An Inspirational Convention & Event could be on any subject that demands consideration. It could be literary, historical, business-focused, culinary, the arts - anything that captures the imagination. Some events will be timed to coincide with specific dates and anniversaries and particularly popular Inspirational Conventions could become annual events.
