An Award Winning Conference & Events Venue
A triumph of architectural design and build, the multi award winning Blackburn Wing is a 2000 sq ft treehouse conference and events venue shaped like an airplane wing and nestled in ancient woodland at the heart of the Bowcliffe Estate, just minutes away from the A1M near Wetherby, West Yorkshire.
Designed and built with meticulous attention to detail, the copper and glass masterpiece took approximately 50 weeks and over 30,000 man hours to build and pays tribute to aviation hero Robert Blackburn, a Yorkshireman who introduced the first scheduled air service in Great Britain, designed and built one of the first powered aeroplanes and who lived at Bowcliffe Hall.
A spectacular venue that can accommodate up to 60 delegates theatre style, 18 delegates boardroom style, 26 delegates cabaret style, 60 for formal dining and up to 100 for a drinks reception, the Blackburn Wing is unique and unforgettable.
State of the Art Facilities
With a colour changing lighting system that can be set to suit your corporate colours, the Blackburn Wing is fully air conditioned and benefits from a blackout facility, full AV facilities including integrated HDMI data projector & screen with a fully cohesive Bose sound system. Free on site parking, free wifi with an onsite IT advisory service and delegate stationery are also available.
