This combination of classic and new has created this iconic venue at Arnos Vale known as the Spielman Centre. Picture yourselves walking the grand steps between the elegant pillars leading up to large double wooden doors opening into a lofty interior space.

The neutral interior and natural lighting floods in from the large leaded windows creating a canvas to adapt and create a truly bespoke atmosphere that can be decorated to reflect your own style and personality.

The Spielman Centre also combines perfectly with our Anglican Chapel or Underwood Centre to become the perfect place for your evening reception with its own bar and woodland terrace.
