If you are looking for function rooms in Durham, there is nothing like hosting your event with a backdrop as timeless as the County Durham riverbank. No matter what the occasion Emirates riverside is the perfect venue for any intimate family gathering or huge Celebration!
In summer 2016 we refurbished the largest most grandest of our suites, The Riverside. As its name suggests, the suite overlooks the evergreens across the County Durham riverside shadowed by the 18th century castle.
There is no comparison to the 160-foot, glass-fronted panoramic view of one of the most picturesque settings in English sport. Seating a maximum of 250 people for a dinner, it is the perfect setting for the grandest of events. Whether you’re looking for a school prom venue, sporting dinner or something more informal, our Riverside suite could be the dramatic setting your events needs to give that ‘wow’ factor.
As the name of this suite suggests, it focusses on the fantastic 18th Century castle positioned directly in front of the room. Whether it’s a frostbitten morning or mid-summer night’s dream, the Castle View is the perfect pitch facing solution for either small intimate gatherings or for slightly larger numbers up to a maximum capacity of 120. The contemporary design of the room lends itself to anything from shabby chic to the most glamourous of events draped in diamonds.
The Cathedral Suite adorns high ceilings creating a large open and airy space. Its square design is diverse for all different kinds of events and is adaptable to design the layout yourself. The Cathedral has floor to ceiling windows optimising natural daylight to illuminate the contemporary design of the room.
Having a large open space outside of the room can create a ground floor event with outside exhibition space, exhibiting inside is also perfect as the square design allows rows to be created for your guests to weave in and out of.
Finally but not to be forgotten, our 4 signature hospitality lounges overlooking the pitch are perfect for smaller dinners of up to 40 guests. These all have their own private bar within the room and are separate from any other space, meaning you have an exclusive space away from disruption.
If you are looking for something completely bespoke or have a special event that can only be created by specifically tailoring, please contact us and we'll put together the package of your dreams.
