Venue hire

You are here

Hollybush Conservation Centre is a truly different venue for your event and by choosing us, you are supporting the work of The Conservation Volunteers in the local community.

Although situated on a busy road junction, the site is below the road and has an air of tranquillity and the ambience of buildings that date back in part to c1700.  They have evolved over the years with our own additions since the 1980s. The small grounds contain a large range of wildlife, food growing and educational features. The rear garden gate opens out to the Leeds Liverpool Canal towpath, with the surface path to the City Centre and to the new Kirkstall Forge Station. 

Natural ventilation, low energy lighting, rain water harvesting, and a wood pellet powered.

Hollybush Conservation Centre offers an environmentally friendly, sustainable and different venue.

Room hire rates are very competitive and include many of the services that other venues charge extra for. We have limited onsite car parking, but will ensure that there are spaces for any delegates with mobility needs, cycle storage and free high speed wi-fi.  Hollybush Conservation Centre is available for bookings all year round – days, evenings and at weekends. A range of audio-visual equipment is available for hire.

The Hollybush Café  provides  on-site catering service and can cater for any event and budget.  From teas & coffees, or a simple sandwhich buffet, to a hot selection menu!*

We are able to obtain occasional alcohol licences (subject to our annual limit) .
