With everything from birthdays and christenings to weddings and wakes held behind closed doors, it feels as though opportunities to spend time with loved ones have been few and far between recently. So, now it’s time to start making up for all those missed celebrations and if you’re looking to host something special, we’ve got the perfect places to create some new memories.


Whether it’s an anniversary meal, a family get together or simply any excuse for a good old party, our event and function rooms are just as stylish as the rest of the Lakeside venue. Contemporary design features are woven alongside original elements and there is the same attention to detail throughout. From the expansive Grand Hall to intimate mezzanines, we’ve been careful to develop flexible spaces that deliver real wow factor for groups of 20 – 300.


If your celebrations are deliberately lower key, you might be interested in hiring one of our smaller, more intimate spaces for up to 30 people.

The Lakeside Bar & Restaurant Mezzanine accommodates from 20 – 30 guests, making it perfect for a private dining experience or drinks party. Get the whole family together to celebrate a special occasion with lunch, dinner or even afternoon tea, or keep things casual with sophisticated cocktails and delicious canapes.


For larger gatherings of 30-plus, the Tower Suite is the place to be. Located on the third floor with stunning views of the lake and grounds through the original circular windows, its flexible layout makes it suitable for events from business presentations to children’s birthday parties and everything in between.

Accommodating up to 100, the Tower Suite has lift access and a private bar, so you can really make the room your own.


If you’ve got more than 60 people to host, we have a couple of options, each one equally as individual as the other.

Overlooking the Grand Hall, Hawksley’s Bar & Lounge is another popular mezzanine area, offering plenty of space in luxurious surroundings. With lift access and a private bar, it’s perfect for up to 120 guests and ideal for private or corporate parties.

Last but by no means least, the impressive Grand Hall is the jewel in Lakeside’s crown, with its high ceilings and statement spiral staircase. From weddings to prom nights, charity balls to corporate dinners, what was the old boiler room has been transformed into the ultimate event space. Hire on its own or combine with Hawksley’s Bar & Lounge to create a versatile space with a huge capacity of 300 people.


Whether your occasion calls for a sit-down dinner, relaxed buffet or tasty canapes, our chefs can deliver. We have developed a selection of private hire menus to choose from, all priced per person and including some of our favourite ingredients from our trusted local suppliers.

Drinks packages can also be arranged and for other details our dedicated events team is always on hand to ensure everything about your event goes to plan.


With easy access from Nottingham city centre and north Nottinghamshire, Lakeside is easy to find and has ample parking for you and your guests. All you need to do is send out the invites!
