Trinity Hall opens new venue at WYNG Gardens

The new conference and events venue opens in central Cambridge

Posted by Hannah Vickers | January 12, 2017 | Estates

Trinity Hall is opening its new conference and events facilities at WYNG Gardens in central Cambridge.

WYNG Gardens, located in the centre of Cambridge, provides conference facilities for up to 100 delegates as well as en-suite double bedrooms.  This space includes an inbuilt audiovisual system and can be hired for residential conferences, board meetings, video conferencing, workshops and presentations.  

The reception and adjoining networking area can be used for exhibitions, displays and as an informal breakout space.

The networking area overlooks a large walled garden, which is in the early stages of growth but which includes a diverse range of seasonal planting as well as climbing roses and hydrangeas. As well as offering an additional breakout area, the garden will host barbecues, buffets and drinks receptions in the summer months. 

Glen Sharp, Junior Bursar at Trinity Hall, said: “WYNG Gardens is an asset to Trinity Hall. This flexible conferencing space combines innovative interiors and lighting to create a positive, vibrant and uplifting environment for learning and development. Working closely with our architects, we have given a great deal of consideration to the design of WYNG Gardens to ensure it remains sensitive to the nature of the buildings in and around Thompson’s Lane.”

At a time when Cambridge is proving more popular than ever as a destination for conferences and events, we are thrilled to be opening WYNG Gardens to visitors from around the world - Fiona Simon, Head of Conference and Catering Services at Trinity Hall

Fiona Simon, Head of Conference and Catering Services at Trinity Hall, said: “At a time when Cambridge is proving more popular than ever as a destination for conferences and events, we are thrilled to be opening WYNG Gardens to visitors from around the world.  In addition to the outstanding new facilities at WYNG Gardens, visitors can also enjoy our historic rooms and riverside grounds at nearby Trinity Hall, one of the oldest and most beautiful of the Cambridge Colleges. The two venues complement each other perfectly for large multi-site events – the rich heritage of Trinity Hall contrasting with the contemporary interiors of WYNG Gardens.”  

Kelly Vickers, Director of Meet Cambridge, said: “We are delighted to add WYNG Gardens to the portfolio of conference and events venues that we represent in and around Cambridge.  The opening of WYNG Gardens is a tremendous start to 2017, a year which promises to be our most successful to date in attracting new and return visitors to this vibrant and historic city.”   

Among the WYNG Gardens project team were award winning Cambridge-based architects Freeland Rees Roberts, co-founded by Trinity Hall alumnus Tristan Rees-Roberts (1967). Trinity Hall has worked closely with the architects and award winning lighting specialists, Hoare Lea Lighting, also based in Cambridge.
