Its flexible design means it can be split into three smaller and more intimate rooms, making it perfect for corporate training sessions, community fun days and fundraisers, or children’s and Christmas parties.

It is also pleasing on the eye, its design allows natural light flow in for maximum effect, creating a bright and highly inspiring and productive atmosphere. With panoramic views and impressive balconies, users can catch the breeze during the day or cool down at evening and night.

What people said...

With only a month or so to organise a daytime event for 60 people in Newcastle, I'll admit to having a mini panic attack at the thought of not being able to find anywhere that was going to be a 'good fit'  with the day we had planned for the Communicator team.

After asking some friends and contacts, The Beacon and Matt Bowmaker were 'highly recommended' to me and I gave him a call.

We had a chat about the sort of day we had planned and it all sounded good, so after Matt sent me some images of the venue, I went along to have a look for myself.

The pictures really don't do it justice.

I knew from walking in to The Skylight Suite that it would be perfect for the event we had planned.

It's modern, bright and spacious - huge if you open out the whole suite.

Every detail - even down to having a bespoke music playlist was catered for and it really couldn't have run any more smoothly than it did.

Everyone (and I mean everyone in the company) said what a fantastic venue and what a fantastic day it was.  Thanks very much to Matt and his team - see you all again in January 2016!

I'm happy to tell you that the party was a huge success. Everyone admired the way the room was dressed, the games room was much used by the kids, the food was exceptional (people raved about it, particularly the beef) and the bar worked fine. I liked the wine selections.
Kerryn is a smashing girl, efficient in a non-bossy way and made sure everyone was happy. Particularly, she fixed the posters on the walls and the books. And Rob was a very efficient and helpful guy. When something occurred to me, your staff had usually done it already!
I have to thank you (Matt) in particular for your attention to detail and how you gave Pat and me confidence that the event was in good hands. I would unhesitatingly recommend the Beacon to anyone inquiring.

I really enjoyed working at The Beacon. The staff were friendly and very efficient and the facilities were excellent and quite able to cope with the very large group that was attending the group. The technical support was also excellent and the food and refreshments enjoyable and very appropriate. I look forward to working there again

To the Beacon staff I can only add my thanks for what was the most successful event since I have been involved in the convention.  I couldn’t fault the service we received and I am very grateful for the support and flexibility you offered us.
