Linbury Building

Funded by Lord John Sainsbury in 1990, The Linbury Building is a dedicated conferencing and private dining venue for up to 100 guests for receptions or 48 guests on a fully-catered basis.

Enjoying a secluded location in the College’s award-winning gardens, the Linbury looks out across the Nuffield Lawn. Floor-to-ceiling lead-glazed panels can be retracted to create an al fresco space in the summer.

With its own specially-commissioned English oak furniture and College-crested leather chairs, the main conferencing space can be adapted into a wide variety of configurations, from seminar, cabaret, or theatre style to private dining or drinks receptions.

The adjacent foyer area is a perfect space for delegate registration, break-out coffee and pastries, and buffet lunch service.

The entire single floor building is wheelchair accessible and full AV facilities can be arranged.
