Venue hire

GHT is Southampton’s newest hire space, and a unique venue in one of the city’s most important historic monuments. The iconic building can be hired exclusively for training days, workshops, meetings, corporate events, parties, launches and meetings, or on a room-by-room basis. 

GHT is a fully licensed venue with in-house and external catering options.

You can hire the ground floor bar with its unique blend of historic and modern architectural design for a private or public event. The space comes fully equipped with hot and cold drinks facilities, and catering can be supplied on request. The performance space can host a band, and we can offer our in-house PA system for your event.
