The Ibex Rooms and Sanderson Room are currently available free of charge for use by BDA committees, branches, specialist groups and formally constituted sub-groups. The Ibex holds 32 people and can be divided into 2 smaller rooms at 16 each. The Sanderson Room can hold a maximum of 6 people and Pybus holds a maximum of 6 people.
While rooms are offered to branches and specialist groups free of charge, lunch can be offered through our local suppliers, but will need to be paid for by the external visitor, which can be done via an internal transfer. Tea and coffee are provided free of charge.
Other groups of dietitians who are not formally part of BDA specialist groups, or individual members, may hire the meeting rooms at a cost. The hire of the Ibex Rooms is £60 per room per day (£90 for the combined Ibex rooms). The Sanderson Room is £60 per day. There is no half day charge. All tea and coffee refreshments (except water which is free) must be paid for separately and can be costed at £4 per person per day. Lunches must be paid for separately, directly with the provider.
Commercial or non-member bookings will be considered at a commercial rate of £120 per day per room. Tea/coffee refreshment charges are the same as above. Queries about external bookings, conflicts with other meetings, etc… should be referred to a member of the Senior Management Team. Priority for all bookings will be given to internal bookings (e.g. BDA Board of Directors and Standing Committees).
All charges include use of available equipment. Meetings can be booked between 9.30am and 4.30pm Monday to Thursday and 9.30am – 4.00pm Friday
