Jesmond & Lambton Rooms

Looking for a small space where you and your stakeholders can meet? Our Jesmond and Lambton Rooms are an excellent choice of venue. Far from the distractions of the outside world, the Jesmond and Lambton Rooms can seat up to 30 guests (or 50 in a cocktail setting) - perfect for team workshops, training sessions, and corporate meetings.

With floor-to-ceiling views of the playing field and the eastern grandstand, these rooms offer ample natural light and a relaxed atmosphere. Complete with a kitchenette where your guests can make tea and coffee throughout the day, it’s the ideal environment for productivity.

You can even set up a snack station where your guests can help themselves to sandwiches, biscuits, and other light snacks. Our catering team will wait on your hand and foot so the event itself goes off without a hitch or interruption.

You will also have access to our seamless WIFI and have space for a projector or speaker if required. These items are available to hire from McDonald Jones Stadium - just let us know what equipment is needed and we’ll make adjustments to the room to ensure you have enough space.


Merewether Room

Hosting an exclusive business awards ceremony? Hire one of our larger conference rooms in Newcastle, capable of hosting up to 350 guests.

Our Merewether Room is perfect for award ceremonies and corporate events. Our largest function space, the Merewether Room is located at the southern end of the Andrew Johns Grandstand and joins onto the Members Bar where guests can order pre-dinner drinks and canapes (on request - additional fees may apply).

With floor-to-ceiling windows and a breathtaking view of the football field, the grandstand, and the Western Precinct, your event will have an extra exclusive atmosphere. Our team will serve bubbles to guests on arrival - we’ll provide luxurious service from the start of the event to the very finish.

The Merewether Room has a flexible open plan design, so your team will even have space to wander around the room and network with other team members or stakeholders. It’s the perfect location to create connections and a real sense of community within your team.

The Merewether Room has a built-in PA system and flexible AV options, too, so you can host an immersive awards ceremony for your guests.


Broadmeadow Room

The Broadmeadow Room is easily one of our most popular and sought-after conference venues. Located on the halfway line, the Broadmeadow room is an open-plan space with lots of natural light, a separate foyer for business calls, and a central bar for those TGIF drinks at the end of the week.

The unique benefit of the Broadmeadow room is its three adjustable walls, making one Newcastle conference venue several!

This room can be configured into several smaller spaces, each with natural light and easy access for all team members. Each miniature Broadmeadow room is capable of accommodating up to 100 guests, making it simple to split the room into different departments and provide bespoke training based on your team’s experience.
