Our chosen venue, The Hayes, in Swanwick, Derbyshire has a rich history after being built in the 1860s. Originally the home of Mr. Fitzherbert Wright, maternal great, great grandfather of the Duchess of York, the Estate was later sold by his son, Henry in 1910. It was then adapted and extended for use as a Conference Centre.
Set in beautiful Derbyshire countryside with easy road, rail and air links, it is the perfect getaway from the fast pace of the city yet easily accessible. With plenty of open green space and a lovely landscape, lake, children’s play area and woodlands, the grounds makes for great viewing. The Centre is also well equipped with quality facilities, and friendly, efficient staff ready to have us.
