The clients’ satisfaction speaks for itself. Here is what some of Headingly Centres clients say about this modern, flexible conference and events centre and the excellent services:
Sheryl Waterhouse, Pinnacle House Manager
“Headingly Centre is an outstanding venue, and we cannot speak highly enough of the staff. Their support before, during and after our events is such a blessing to us all. Everything is done in a professional manner; they always go out of their way to ensure we have a successful event. We are incredibly grateful to have this facility for our use. I highly recommend The Headingly Centre to anyone considering a future conference or event”.
The Family Liaison Group
“A very big thank you for playing a major role in the success of the Ladies Fashion Night we recently hosted at the Headingly Centre in Richmond. The event was attended by over 160 local ladies. … Everyone had a great night, and the kindergarten was delighted with what it raised”.
Sally Leggett, DOC Ranger
“The function went really well, thank you! It was great to have (technician) Marty’s help with the presentations. Thanks for the use of the Headingly Centre, it is such a great venue”.
The final and most exciting stage of the over two-and-a-half-thousand square metre Headingly Centre is a 630-seat, state-of-the-art, performing arts auditorium. It will offer excellence in sound, lighting, and data projection and a massive 200 square metre stage. It will be complimented by two-stage wings and a large Green Room. Much planning, fundraising and work have yet to be undertaken to outfit the existing shell, but it is hoped that this fantastic addition to the Nelson region will be operational and ready to host shows and performances by 2024.
