4 new updates to The Hayes

April 2024


In the past few months, several big projects have come to completion at The Hayes. These projects are all to improve the conferencing experience, making it more comfortable and enjoyable. From brand-new furniture and decor to updated audio/visual equipment, here are the 4 latest updates to The Hayes.

1. The Vinery

If you've ever visited The Hayes, you will have come across the Vinery, a beautiful sunroom perfect for your morning coffee. We have completely updated all of the furniture and decor, creating a gorgeous space to sit and chat.

2. The Derbyshire Hall

Our largest meeting space is the Derbyshire Hall, capable of seating up to 400 delegates. It has undergone a complete refurbishment complete with new carpet, wooden panelling on the back wall, and a new colour scheme. See the before and after photos below...

3. The Hayes Orchard

As you walk up to The Chapel or The Derbyshire suite, you will have seen the patch of grass outside the walkway. This has now been transformed into an orchard! Several fruit trees and bushes have been planted and are blooming Spring flowers already. The fruits that grow will be used in desserts and drinks at The Hayes.

4. Main Conference Hall A/V

Over the last few years, as technology has developed, we've made an effort to keep our Audio/Visual equipment up to date. To stay consistent with our technology standards, we have replaced the projector in the Main Conference Hall with 2 brand-new 86-inch 4k screens.

We take joy in providing the best conference experience for our guests. Whether it's a fresh lick of paint or brand-new state-of-the-art A/V equipment, we are constantly looking to improve our centres. Make sure to look out for these changes on your next visit to The Hayes.
