Conferences, Meetings and Functions in the Anthony Hopkins Centre

Anthony Hopkins Centre courtyard

Our historic Anthony Hopkins Centre - the original Cardiff Castle stables - is ideal for smaller events with a formal boardroom, reception rooms and a stunning open-air courtyard.

Its impressive tree-lined avenue provides the entrance for delegates and guests with Cardiff Castle in view.

 

“I just wanted to set down in writing my thanks to you and your exceptional team for organising such a superb conference over the past three days. The profile given to your very talented students made it a very special conference and one that is unlikely ever to be matched. All the arrangements worked very well indeed and seemed to go very smoothly.

All I can say is that your efforts were a spectacular success and showed off the College to great advantage. I believe that the 2012 BUFDG Conference will go down in history as one of the very great conferences – so that those attending the 2032 conference will still be recalling this one.

Thank you very much indeed from one very impressed delegate who had a great time.”
Miles S Hedges, Finance Director, The Open University

“I was so impressed with your new building, and the concert hall is wonderful. It really is the finest modern hall that I have ever seen.”
Sarah Francis, British Oboe Society

“I just wanted to let you know how helpful and cooperative Beth was last Monday with the arrangements of our workshop. I know I was a reasonably demanding client but every request was dealt with effectively, willingly and with courtesy. This just made everything so much easier. Also I’d like to thank the team for the ‘quick shift’ of furniture, in almost record time.”
Jane Green, Engagement Manager, Welsh NHS Confederation

“I wanted to thank you and your team for the excellent work you all did on Friday at the YLS symposium. Everyone I spoke to was incredibly helpful and friendly, and all of our requests were met immediately.

I had many people comment to me about how smoothly the day went, and that would not have been possible if it wasn't for all of the brilliant team at the RWCMD, especially the technicians, caterers and receptionists. I've had a lot of compliments about the food, and feedback about how brilliant the space is.

So thank you all again for your hard work, and for helping to make the event successful! Kindest regards.”
Kat Bowles, Cardiff University
