The award winning TS Eliot Theatre, located in Rose Lane gardens, opened in June 2010. This wonderful new addition to Merton College is the most recent building to be opened in the College's almost 750-year history.
The theatre offers conference organisers state-of-the-art facilities whilst enabling organisers and delegates to enjoy the historic buildings and gardens of a traditional college environment.
The flexible facilities can comfortably accommodate a conference of up to 140 guests and is equally suitable for smaller events. The tiered auditorium seats up to 118 guests, with additional gallery seating on either side if required.
The TS Eliot Theatre complex offers not only the main auditorium but also three additional seminar rooms and a large foyer area which can be used for lunch, refreshments, or for accommodating smaller groups.
The fully equipped lecture theatre offers:
The TS Eliot Theatre also has a full-time dedicated Lecture Theatre Supervisor who will be on hand throughout your event to help with all aspects of successfully running your event – including setting-up, AV support, ad-hoc requirements and servicing of your room during your event.
“The TS Eliot Theatre at Merton College is an outstanding venue. With all the latest technology, style and comfort, it was a pleasure to hold our conference in such wonderful surroundings. I would certainly call on Merton again to hold an event.”
Ann Cowie, June 2010
