Co-Op Women's Guild at KWMCC

Your venue of choice

A successful event takes careful planning, marketing know-how, a little creativity and of course the perfect venue.

Whether you’re hosting a private party, a charity fundraiser, a walk, an auction or a glitzy ball, hiring the right venue at the right price is essential.

We would love to hear about your next event and discuss how we can be your venue of choice.

Jess Grant Celebration is a Registered Charity: 1179649, raising funds for music therapy. Jess’ passion was music; both listening to and playing her beloved electric guitar, and more recently her drums. And it was music that helped Jess cope with the 3.5 years of gruelling treatments and operations she faced after being diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a rare bone cancer, in September 2014.

Christmas Party Nights

Friday 13th & Saturday 14th December 2019

‘Twas the weekend before Christmas, when all through the place, not a creature was moving, not even a trace. The eggnog was cold and the wine glasses bare in the hope that the guests would soon be there. The staff at the centre were snug in their beds while visions of food and drink danced in their heads. All the tables were ready and decorations galore. Let’s eat drink and be merry till we can manage no more!’

Join us for our organised ‘Christmas Party Nights’ (over 18’s only) with a Mardi Gras theme, on the 13th & 14th December 2019.

Tickets are just £29 and include a glass of fizz on arrival, a festive feast buffet, dancing to the sounds of J & B Disco and of course the obligatory photo booth/selfie mirror will be available to create some fun memories of a fabulous night out.

Group bookings available (Seat up to 10 guests per table) bottles of wine and  beer for your table can be pre-ordered for you, from our very reasonably priced bar.
